PUTNAM COUNTY — The Blanchard River Watershed Partnership (BRWP) is seeking volunteers to help gather information and collect data to start writing a watershed action plan for the Cranberry Creek watershed.
Since 2011, the BRWP has received full endorsement from the Ohio EPA and ODNR for two Watershed Action Plans. As a result of these endorsements, the BRWP and agencies in the area have been awarded over 4.4 million dollars in grant money to help improve the water quality in the two subwatersheds.
By having volunteers help collect the data and information from the Cranberry Creek watershed, the BRWP hopes to have the Watershed Action Plan for Cranberry Creek completed sometime in 2015.
The BRWP represents the six counties of the Blanchard River Watershed and is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving water quality through developing citizen involvement and watershed action plans. Volunteers are welcome to join activities at any time. Learn more about the Blanchard River on the BRWP website at www.BlanchardRiver.org.
