Dickering in the Maumelle watershed

Why this news release -- about a possible effort by Central Arkansas Water and state agencies to work out a purchase of Jay DeHaven property in the Lake Maumelle watershed -- turned up on a Saturday, I have no idea. There are a number of players in this who lack the highest degree of credibility, to put it mildy.

If anybody has insight, it's welcome here.

CENTRAL ARKANSAS WATER NEWS RELEASE

Agencies to tour Winrock Grass Farm; consider acquisition
 
LITTLE ROCK — Central Arkansas Water (CAW), the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission, and the Arkansas Association of Conservation Districts are hosting a tour of the Winrock Grass Farm, with the desire to develop partnerships that could include the purchase of the property for conservation and water-supply protection purposes.
 
The time and date of the tour are 10 a.m. Thursday, June 19, 2008.
 
The two conservation resources agencies and the water utility have held an initial discussion about the scope of their efforts. The overarching goal is to partner with various agencies, organizations, and individuals to purchase the sod farm and establish educational, recreational, and conservation-practice demonstration areas on the property.
 
Graham W. Rich, P.E., Chief Executive Officer of CAW, says plans for the tour came out of a meeting back in May of this year.
 
“Representatives of our agencies met to discuss the possibilities, and the response was extremely encouraging,” he shares. “This partnership opportunity represents an additional measure of protection for Lake Maumelle, as well as the community preservation of a natural area for educational and recreational purposes.”
