Watershed Council Project Updates
WET ? Liz shared about the partnership with DEQ and Pringle Creek, the progress that is being made with the pledge program and the Pringle Creek residents, and the need to soon include local businesses. She also discussed the interest in educating the public and especially local school groups in the problems with car wash fundraisers and the soapy water running directly into the stream.
Liz reported on the Archibald Detention Basin project. She explained some of the problems conventionally present with detention basins ? usually the only plants that will grow are blackberry and Scotch broom. She showed pictures and explained the steps taken to make this a model project of what a detention basin could look like.
C. Pringle Creek Corridor- Wendy gave the history of the problems Salem Hospital had with falling trees in their parking lot and the plans to remove several more. She shared the involvement of PCWC with the hospital, School for the Blind and others in coming up with a plan to remove trees in danger of falling, but also to planting others ? especially more native plants.
Website- Victor gave out the location to look at the new webpage. It is HYPERLINK "http://www.teleport.com/vjdodier/pringlecreek." www.teleport.com/vjdodier/pringlecreek He needs more content and links for the website.
Liberty Rd.- Many of the trees planted in this area did not survive. They are being mowed down or not watered. Need to have a monitoring agreement with the city and school grounds supervisors before planting. Liz asked the group about using straw instead of composting for mulch. A concern was raised about pesticides used with straw.
