Tuckasegee River Watch Our Water Team
The Tuckasegee Community Alliance is gearing up for an effort to identify, report, and hopefully eliminate sources of erosion. We are partnering with Roger Clapp of The Watershed Association of the Tuckasegee River (WATR) to form a Watch Our Water (WOW) team of volunteers to monitor streams during storms, sample for turbidity, document and report sources of erosion and sedimentation to the appropriate agencies.
Our WOW team will identify, report and document erosion sites and their sources. Once erosion sources are identified, we will reach out to landowners in order to make recommendations and work together on possible solutions. Sites of importance or with solvable erosion problems will be targeted first.
Interested in joining our efforts? Please contact Ken Brown.
Macon/Jackson Green Drinks
Green Drinks is a time for local folks to get together and socialize, have a drink, talk about environmental or social justice issues, and just have a great time with one another.
We hope you will join us for the next Franklin Green Drinks, happening the 3rd Tuesday of every month at the Rathskellar in Downtown Franklin.
The next Jackson/Macon Green Drinks will be at 6:30 p.m. July 17 at the Soul Infusion Tea House & Bistro in Sylva.
Jackson County Planner Gerald Green will speak and answer questions on topics such as the state of development, associated ordinances, ordinance revisions, and will also explain vested rights and how this process works – or doesn’t – in Jackson County.
Green will also give an update on some of the controversial failed developments in Jackson.
