Special to the
Opelika Observer

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 Sept. 18 2018 from 5-6 p.m. in the Opelika City Council Chambers, which are located at 204 S. 7th St. 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) nonpoint source grant by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency – Region 4.
