(Dallas, Texas – January 7, 2008) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has awarded $132,000 to the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission. The commission will use the funds to complete a detailed geomorphic map of the entire Coastal Plain in Arkansas. The project will complete areas not covered in a Ouachita River Geomorphic mapping effort in 2006, and combine all Coastal Plain Geomorphic mapping in single coverage. This map will allow more accurate application of the published Coastal Plain Hydrogeomorphic Guidebook, and allow for future hydrogeomorphic mapping.
