The 60-day formal review period for the Pomme de Terre River Draft Comprehensive Watershed Management Plan ended on Monday, February 11, 2020. Thank you to all of you who took the time to review it and submit comments.
Our next step is to hold two public hearings in the watershed. I sent out a legal notice to nine of our local newspapers this week announcing the upcoming public hearings. In case you don’t get a chance to see any of those newspapers, here’s the announcement:
NOTICE is hereby given that the Pomme de Terre River Association will hold two public hearings within the Pomme de Terre River watershed to hear public comments regarding the Pomme de Terre River Draft Comprehensive Watershed Management Plan, prior to submittal of the Plan to the Board of Water and Soil Resources for final review.
