Project Title & Description
Cowskin Creek Basin Watershed Planning Project
The Andale Chamber of Commerce will work with citizens and officials from the Cowskin Creek, Upper Dry Creek, and Lower Dry Creek subbasins (HUC 14) to coordinate efforts and organize an entity to oversee the development of a watershed management plan for the area. These waterways have been identified as impaired for fecal coliform and nutrients (high priority) and chlordane (low prioritiy). This watershed is included in the Arkansas-Slate Subbasin (HUC 8) with the highest priority ranking for restoration. They are also experiencing numerous flood events due to poorly managed stormwater runoff.
