Lately there has been a small army of trucks and workers drilling holes into the ground in the downtown area around our offices. Using a series of drilling sites and sample locations, a map is being created of the locations of karst features and contamination spots in the Jordan Creek Basin. The end goal is to remove polluted soils where they can be removes and restore the natural bank conditions along the creek. Much of the work is underway with many improvements already made to the West Meadows area West of our downtown office on Main street. Our urban streams are such a privilege taken for granted, and it is exciting to see the work being done out our precious resource. If you need a reminder about why urban streams are important, take a look at this video of my Pecha Kucha presentation back in September at the ideaXfactory.

Thanks,

Rob Hunt, Watershed Center Coordinator
