Thursday, August 14, 2014, noon meeting of the Beaver Watershed Alliance at Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce office. Everyone welcome with RSVP required

Subject: Beaver Watershed Alliance West Fork Opportunity Meeting - August 14th, 12-1 pm
 Dear West Fork Watershed leader,
 The Beaver Watershed Alliance would like to invite you to a meeting for Washington County staff, elected officials, city staff, and other leaders in the West Fork Watershed community to show the initial results of our West Fork Opportunity Assessment as well as seek input and feedback for our program. The meeting will take place on Thursday, August 14th, from 12-1 pm at the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce large conference room. The Chamber is located at 123 W. Mountain Street in Fayetteville.
 The ultimate goal of our program is to improve the water quality of the West Fork of the White River, which flows from Winslow to Fayetteville and empties into Beaver Lake, the drinking water source for over 420,000 people. Since last fall, we have been working on a variety of water quality issues in the West Fork Watershed, connecting with streamside landowners, implementing Best Management Practices, and creating an assessment of water quality improvement opportunities. The initial results of our landowner interaction and community feedback are conveyed in a series of maps, however we realize that there are still existing opportunities for water quality improvement that we have not yet accounted for and we are still seeking input regarding these opportunities. We would appreciate your attendance at this meeting and feedback on our program, since it has implications for our valuable water resource and is integral for a healthy Northwest Arkansas economy and community.
 Lunch will be provided for attendees, and an RSVP is requested. You may reserve your spot at the meeting by contacting Courtney Thomas at 479-750-8007 or courtney@beaverwatershedalliance.org
Thank you, 
Courtney Thomas
Outreach Coordinator of Beaver Watershed Alliance
