  • Austin County Courthouse, 1 E. Main St. in Bellville

A Texas Watershed Steward workshop on water quality issues related to Mill Creek will be held from 1-5 p.m. Jan. 9 in the basement meeting room of the Austin County Courthouse, 1 E. Main St. in Bellville.  The training is free and open to anyone interested in improving water quality in the region, said program coordinators. Participants are encouraged to preregister at http://tws.tamu.edu.

The workshop is presented by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board.  “Development of a watershed protection plan for Mill Creek will soon begin, and involvement by local citizens is crucial during this process,” said Michael Kuitu, AgriLife Extension program specialist and coordinator for the Texas Watershed Steward program. “Therefore, this training is designed to help watershed residents improve and protect their water resources by becoming informed and actively involved in their local watershed protection and management activities.”  Kuitu said the workshop will include an overview of water quality and watershed management in Texas, with a focus on area water quality issues, including current efforts to help improve and protect Mill Creek. Although the workshop will address issues related to Mill Creek, the information provided will be applicable to all watersheds in the region.
