Raise your hand if you like muddy water

Posted By on Fri, Mar 21, 2008 at 12:20 PM

Tetra Tech, the firm hired by Central Arkansas Water to make recommendations on how to keep Lake Maumelle and our drinking water clean, says that provisions in Pulaski County's draft ordinance on watershed protection will expose the lake to "substantially higher risks" than CAW's own plan.

A public hearing on the county ordinance is set for 6-8 p.m. Monday, March 24 at the UA Cooperative Extension Service Auditorium at 2301 S. University, just north of UALR. People interested in having clean water to drink should attend.

The Pulaski County Planning Board will have review the proposed ordinance at 3 p.m. March 25 at 501 W. Markham. They can vote on the ordinances at this meeting or postpone until a later meeting. The ordinance is not currently on the agenda of the Quorum Court, which meets at 7 p.m. that day.
