The City of Opelika is partnering with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, Auburn University, the Alabama Department of Environmental Management, Keep Opelika Beautiful, Alabama Water Watch and other stakeholders on a grant to develop a Pepperell Branch Watershed Management Process.
Citizens are invited to learn more about this process and how they can become involved at a public meeting on September 18, 2018, from 5 - 6 p.m. in the Opelika City Council Chambers. This is located at 204 South 7th Street in Opelika.
The Pepperell Branch Watershed Planning Process will work to build and strengthen partnerships, as well as garner stakeholder involvement, to identify a path to watershed restoration and improvement of water quality.
This project is funded by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management through a Clean Water Act Section 319(h) non point source grant by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency – Region 4.
