Pringle Creek Watershed Council Minutes:

January 10, 2006

Victor Dodier called the meeting to order at 6:30 p.m. Present were: Ed Emrick, Glenn Dolphin, Susan Kephart, Ken Roley, Joan Grindeland, Nancy Gramlich, Clark Worth, Ryan Kinnett, Victor Dodier, and John Savage.

Ken Roley gave an update on Salem's Pringle Creek Basin Study. The key question of the study is how to define a healthy stream in an urban area. The City has hired a consultant team – HDR – that has begun analysis of available information. The City has installed two water monitoring stations on Pringle Creek and two stations on Clark Creek. The City is considering three early action projects at the Mission Street Bridge in Bush Park and at Mirror Pond. The City will be surveying Pringle Creek residents about their values for the watershed and their knowledge of waste-preventing actions.

The Council is sponsoring a clean-up on January 21 from 9:30 am to 11:30 am at the Liberty Elementary School Bioswale.

Next Council meeting will be entirely devoted to discussing and developing a big-picture plan for restoring the Fairview wetlands.

Victor reported that the Salem-Keizer Coordination Grant has been approved and an agreement with OWEB signed. Next step is finalizing an agreement with the Marion Soil and Water Conservation District.

Respectfully Submitted, John Savage, Secretary.
