Watershed Coordinators Roundtable, Stakeholder Facilitation Training July 26–27

Watershed Coordinators Roundtable, Stakeholder Facilitation Training July 26–27 The Texas Water Resources Institute will host a Texas Watershed Coordinators Roundtable on July 27 at the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) Dalchau Service Center in Austin. Presentations and discussions will focus on bacteria dynamics, assessment methods and best management practices (BMPs). To RSVP, visit watershedplanning.tamu.edu.

Preceding the roundtable, a Stakeholder Facilitation Training will be held July 26, at the LCRA Complex. The training, instructed by Charlie MacPherson of Tetra Tech, will highlight the tools used to effectively identify, engage and involve stakeholders throughout a watershed to restore and maintain healthy environmental conditions.

“Excessive levels of bacteria are the leading cause of water quality impairment in Texas,” said Kevin Wagner, TWRI associate director. “This roundtable and training will provide much needed insight on these impairments and how to facilitate improvements.”

The training courses are supported by funding from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality through an U.S. Environmental Protection Agency nonpoint source grant.

More information and registration is available online.
