AZLE – A stakeholder meeting related to the Eagle Mountain Lake Watershed Protection Plan will be held from 1:30 p.m.-4 p.m. Nov. 2 in the Azle Memorial Library, 333 West Main St. in Azle, said meeting coordinators.
The meeting is free and open to area residents and other stakeholders interested in the quality and availability of water from Eagle Mountain Lake, coordinators said. Sponsors are Texas AgriLife Research and the Texas AgriLife Extension Service in conjunction with the Tarrant Regional Water District and Wise County Soil and Water Conservation District.
“We’ve already made some good progress with the initial development of a comprehensive watershed protection strategy for this important water source,” said David Waidler of AgriLife Research, watershed coordinator for the North Central Texas Water Quality Project. “The success of these efforts will require the further involvement of area residents and other stakeholders. We want area landowners to know about the short- and long-term benefits of working with us toward implementing best management practices for soil and water conservation. ”
Meeting topics include an update on to-date project progress, discussion of the economic benefits of selected best management practices, a demonstration of the Soil and Water Assessment Tool for evaluating management solutions, the use of a water quality analysis computer model, and water quality management plans for Eagle Mountain Lake watershed-area landowners. Presentations will be given by personnel from AgriLife Research, AgriLife Extension, the water district and conservation district.
