The Riley-Purgatory-Bluff Creek Watershed District stormwater pond project began in 2010, with initial data collection conducted in the summers of 2010 and 2011 and the second phase beginning in 2012. The purpose of the project is to ascertain if stormwater ponds are possible sources of pollution within the District and identify the ‘bad’ ponds with exceptionally high total phosphorus concentrations that could be targeted for remediation projects. By improving the water quality of these ‘bad’ ponds, the many lakes and creeks within the District will ultimately benefit from reduced total phosphorus levels in stormwater.
There are six openings on the Riley-Purgatory-Bluff Creek Watershed District Citizen Advisory Committee. The Riley-Purgatory-Bluff Creek Watershed District Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) is a citizen-led volunteer advisory group to the Riley-Purgatory-Bluff Creek Watershed District that serves at the pleasure of the RPBCWD Board of Managers.
The District was awarded $150,000 dollars for the Bluff Creek Fish Passage and Streambank Restoration Project.
