Summer 2019 Website Update
Sent on September 12, 2019
Dear UNRBA partners,
The first half of 2019 has been exciting for the Upper Neuse River Basin. As we continue to make progress toward a revised nutrient management strategy for Falls Lake, we want to work with you. Look for occasional email announcements in the coming months as we share notes on our progress, announce upcoming events, seek your feedback, and celebrate important milestones.
What's new for the UNRBA?
Check out a new timeline on our website at UpperNeuse.org/timeline. The timeline highlights the UNRBA's major accomplishments in recent years and charts a path forward through 2024, the target year to begin adopting a new approach to nutrient management for Falls Lake and its watershed.
FALLS LAKE AND WATERSHED NOW AMONG MOST-STUDIED WATER RESOURCE SYSTEMS IN NORTH CAROLINA
The UNRBA recently released the results of a 51-month, $3 million water quality monitoring program for the 770-square-mile area that drains into Falls Lake. The report is an important step in the ongoing reexamination of the Falls Lake Nutrient Management Strategy and Rules, as its results will provide scientific backing for new options. Find our press release and a link to the full report at UpperNeuse.org/monitoring-report-released.
