Watershed Council Minutes:
John Savage called the meeting to order at 6:30 p.m. Present were: Ken Roley, Ryan Kinnett, Ed Emrick, Roger Heusser, Glenn Dolphin, and John Savage.
Ken Roley, facilities engineer with Salem Public Works, discussed Salem's Pringle Creek Watershed Management Planning effort. The City has hired a multi-discipline consultant team to identify key Pringle Creek watershed issues; set plan objectives, survey residents in the watershed on their values and habits; summarize baseline environmental conditions; complete a bioassessment study; characterize streamflow, drainage, instream, riparian, and water quality conditions; and develop long-term strategies and a short-term action list. The team should complete its work in a year. Public Works may ask the Council for help on public outreach.
The Council agreed to sponsor an ivy removal at the Salem Hospital site on Make-A-Difference Day, October 22. Roger Heusser will contact the hospital. Ryan Kinnett will look into acquiring native plants for planting at the site.
The Council will also solicit volunteers for projects at the Fairview site.
Respectfully Submitted, John Savage, Secretary.
