Have you ever wondered where all the water goes after the rain ends? Or where your community’s storm sewers or drainage ditches lead?
The answer is your local creek, river or lake. When turning on a faucet, most Arkansans have no doubt that clean water will spill out, but not nearly enough people know the source of that water or about their community’s water quality.
Nearly two-thirds of the state’s 75 counties are home to a watershed with some form of impairment.
Now through March, the Cooperative Extension Service will present a series of watershed workshops where residents can learn more about local water concerns and how their actions can affect water quality.
