The public is invited to an open house on the South Tributaries Watershed Study from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, August 15 at Roper Elementary School, 2323 S. Coddington Ave. The study will result in watershed master plans for portions of Haines Branch, Middle Creek and South Salt Creek watersheds.
The purpose of the master plans is to identify needed projects to improve water quality and stream stability and to determine stormwater runoff characteristics of areas that may develop in the near future. The master plans will also identify special or unique areas in the watersheds.
Participants at the open house will have an opportunity to discuss the study and provide input to staff from the City of Lincoln and the Lower Platte South Natural Resources District as well as the scientists and engineers working on the project. Available information will include the project scope and time line, a summary of watershed inventories and an analysis of potential erosion and stream stability issues.
