Public invited to comment on watershed action plans

BATAVIA, OH (Oct. 2, 2020) — East Fork Watershed Collaborative is updating action plans for the Glady Creek and Solomon Run subwatersheds in Brown, Clermont, Clinton and Highland Counties, and would like to hear from residents about the water quality needs for this area.

In May 2006, the East Fork Watershed Collaborative completed a watershed action plan that summarized the existing conditions and laid out strategies for protecting or improving water quality for these and other areas. Several items listed in the 2006 plan have been accomplished, but new challenges and regulations have arisen since the plan was completed, necessitating an update.

The East Fork Watershed Collaborative will accept public comments through Saturday, Oct. 31.

Copies of the draft watershed plans are posted on Clermont Soil and Water Conservation District’s website at https://www.clermontswcd.org/east-fork-watershed-programs/.

Comments or questions may be addressed to Becky McClatchey, SWCD Natural Resource Specialist, at rmcclatchey@clermontcountyohio.gov, or (513) 732-7075 ext. 6. Written comments may also be sent to Clermont SWCD, P.O. Box 549, Owensville, OH 45160.
