Batten Kill Watershed Alliance NY/VT Annual Meeting, Thursday 10/24/13 @ 7 PM
American Legion Hall, East Arlington Road, Arlington, VT
All habitat – for people or for wildlife -- is based on clean water. The circulatory system of rainfall, groundwater, and surface water is the prerequisite for our lives and for the ecology of the Batten Kill watershed. Presentations at our annual meeting will provide information about initiatives by the state of Vermont to protect and restore the quality of the water systems upon which we rely.
“Vermont’s Clean Water Future: Overcoming the State’s Water Quality Challenges”
By Kari Dolan, Ecosystem Restoration Program Manager.
“Using a watershed framework to provide integrated water resource management for the
restoration and protection of water resources in Vermont”
By Ethan Swift, Watershed Coordinator for Basin One.
These presentations will serve to educate us about how to meet Vermont’s clean water challenges. We need clean water for drinking to protect public health, to support economic activity, and to sustain our wildlife resources. Yet we also need to minimize the financial impacts of policies on municipalities, businesses, farms, and individuals. The water of the Batten Kill river system is relatively clean. How can we keep it that way?
There will also be the election of Alliance board members: Stan Duncan – angler & dedicated Clearwater Chapter Trout Unlimited member from NY; Jim Henderson – angler, geologist, & founding BKWA boardmember from VT; Jamie Woods – environmental attorney, angler, & American Museum of Fly Fishing board member from NY.
Directions: from Rte. 7A in Arlington turn east onto East Arlington Road, up the hill, turn right before the railroad tracks on Legion Road.
