The City of Fayetteville and the Environmental Action Committee is hosting a series of monthly watershed luncheons at Biobased, Inc. beginning June 17, at noon. Communities in Northwest Arkansas have spent millions of dollars to preserve the region’s supply of drinking water as well as other water resources. The primary way to avoid future costs is by taking care of this precious commodity. By educating ourselves, we can help teach others how to best care for our water resources.

The 45 minute presentations by local experts will include information about water science, upcoming projects, and opportunities for citizen involvement. We are excited about this outreach program that will educate residents, affect future water policy, and help protect our great quality of life.
