May 13, 2013: The Role of Phosphorous on the Environment

February 11, 2013

This meeting’s program focused on transportation improvement projects in the watershed. IDOT representatives provided an update the Route 21 project currently being constructed and the study that is underway to plan improvements to the Route 83/137 corridor. Both corridors include stream crossings of Bull Creek/Bull’s Brook. See the map of road projects in the watershed with the IDOT roadway corridors highlighted.  

The Watershed Council work plan was reviewed following the guest presentations. A progress summary for the 2012 work plan is attached along with a proposed work plan for 2013.  Please take a few minutes to look at these and share your thoughts on the Council’s focus for 2013.
If you have any questions, please contact Ken Klick, Council Chair,  or Patty Werner (meeting organizer).
