Coastal Well Owner Webinar

Online

Well owners in Mobile and Baldwin counties are invited to attend the Coastal Well Owner Webinar. This webinar will discuss an opportunity to enroll in a free well water testing program offered by Ann Ojeda at Auburn University. This research endeavor is in partnership with the Alabama Extension Based – Alabama Private Well Program (APWP).
Registration is required to attend a webinar. People only need to attend one webinar to learn about the research experience and well water testing opportunity. All three webinars will cover the same information. Register for the date and time that works best with your schedule! The Zoom meeting number and link will be provided upon completion of the online registration.

This research is a part of a larger study done in partnership with the National Science Foundation-Integrated Groundwater Management effort and the Alabama Center of Excellence. Ojeda has partnered with the APWP to recruit well owners to participate in a two-year, citizen-science opportunity where well owners can receive free well water testing kits and conduct water quality monitoring of their drinking water.

Watershed Planning Workshop – Enterprise

Enterprise Farmers Market, 525 N. Main Street Enterprise AL, 36330

Introduction to Watershed Planning Workshop
Alabama Watershed Stewards
Auburn University Water Resources Center + Extension Water Program

Thursday – September 29, 2022
Enterprise Farmers Market
525 N Main St, Enterprise, AL 36330
8:30am – 4:00pm
Register: http://aub.ie/watershedmanagement

Alabama Watershed Stewards at Auburn University works to collaboratively improve the health of waterbodies and provide a platform for the exchange of problems and solutions through local support networks. We offer both educational outreach and on the ground projects that encourage the adoption of water management strategies that benefit the community, the economy, and the environment.

Watershed planning is a voluntary integrated approach to addressing water quality problems by considering the watershed as a whole. These one-day in person workshops introduce the process of watershed planning for communities as a voluntary way to plan for a community’s water future and gain opportunities for project funding.

Who should attend: Community leaders, municipal officials, planners, watershed coordinators, environmental groups, interested citizens.

What you’ll learn:
1. Watershed planning – what it means and how it works
2. The basics of watershed health
3. Identify challenges and opportunities in your community
4. Explore funding opportunities related to water improvement projects
5. Leverage water resources and community development
6. Identify priorities and next steps

What you’ll do: Listen to presentations from others in the region working on watershed planning and work with local community members on identifying opportunities you’re your own watershed.

How it works: Taking a watershed approach represents awareness that restoring and maintaining our waters requires participation by both public and private sectors, where citizens, elected officials, and technical personnel all have opportunity to participate. Watershed plans outline a long term plan for improving a community’s water quality, and many people have roles to play in doing so. This voluntary integrated approach mirrors the complicated relationships in which people live, work and recreate in the watershed, and suggests a comprehensive, watershed-based and community-based approach is needed to address these.
