Bank Stabilization Meeting

Originally uploaded by Iron Bieso
The East Dakota Water Development District will host a meeting at 7 p.m. April 1 at the Renner Township Hall in Renner.

The meeting will include remarks from Andrew Simon, a project manager with the Agricultural Research Services (ARS) of the US Department of Agriculture. The ARS recently completed an analysis of bank stability and potential reductions in sediment loading to the Big Sioux River between Baltic and Sioux Falls.

Input from the public is welcome; the meeting will highlight plans for work, costs involved, and areas affected. Call the East Dakota Water Development District/Big Sioux River Watershed Project leader Roger Strom at 605-688-6741 with questions.

Reminder: Ice is melting on the Big Sioux River in many places, so save April 25 for an Earth Day cruise, it's right around the corner.
