Second public meeting for Coosawattee-Carters watershed plan Jan. 16
The Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission, Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) and Nutter & Associates will host a second public meeting to discuss a watershed management plan for the Coosawattee River-Carters Lake Watershed Management Area and results from our monitoring in 2018, as well as to solicit feedback from stakeholders.
The meeting will take place Wednesday, Jan. 16, 1:30 p.m., at the Gilmer County Library, 268 Calvin Jackson Drive. It will be open to the public.
Within the Coosawattee – Carters Lake Watershed Management Area, three stream reaches are listed on the 2016 Georgia EPD 305(d)/303(b) integrated report for not supporting the designated use for fishing due to elevated fecal coliform concentrations potentially caused by nonpoint source pollution.
Stakeholders can provide valuable information and data regarding their community, impaired water bodies, potential causes of impairments and management practices and activities that may be employed to reduce the impacts of the causes of impairment.
