Republican River Restoration Partnership to host meeting Oct. 22
The Republican River Restoration Partnership (RRRP) will host their next meeting on Thursday, Oct. 22, at the Gateway in Oberlin, Kan., beginning at 10 a.m. Central Time.
Included in the day’s agenda will be a presentation from Dr. Wayne Woldt, Department of Biological Systems Engineering with the School of Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Dr. Woldt will present his research on Virtual Watershed Hydrological Units.
The water environment consists of many interconnected, highly dependent components that include climate, watersheds, and human interactions; and processes such as physical, biological and chemical that pose major research challenges to water/environmental sciences and engineering.
The goal of his project is to establish the foundation for competitive research leading to a Great Plains Hydrologic and Environmental Observatory.
To receive a copy of the agenda or to register for the event, please contact Southwest Nebraska RC&D at 888-585-1085 or email
. The cost for lunch will be payable at the door.
The RRRP works to positively affect management of the riparian area of the Republican River and its tributaries in Colorado, Kansas and Nebraska.
Its goals are to foster cooperation between three states to develop a regional plan for the watershed, to increase economic development throughout the area, increase the quantity and quality of water within the watershed and increase educational opportunities in regard to water quantity and quality.
