WRAPS meeting is June 4
The Marion Reservoir Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy project is hosting a meeting and dinner 4 p.m. June 4 at the Marion Community Center in the city building.
Concerned people are encouraged to ask questions about blue-green algae and water quality at Marion Reservoir. WRAPS coordinator Peggy Blackman will explain the protections WRAPS put in place to prevent algae and improve water quality. About $2 million in grant funds have been spent in the 200 square miles of the watershed.
Central National Bank, Hillsboro State Bank, Peabody State Bank, Tampa State Bank, and WRAPS are sponsoring the meeting and dinner.
