Prescott Creeks and the Dexter Connectors will host a discussion on Thursday, October 24th at 6:30 pm at Northpoint Expeditionary Learning Academy (551 First St.) on the redesign and rebuild of the retention basin at the corner of Miller Valley and Whipple. T. Barnabas Kane and Associates will present their design and discuss this local project that will improve water quality by reducing Nonpoint Source Pollution.
The Upper Granite Creek Watershed contains six water bodies that are not meeting Arizona’s water quality standards. The goal of this Arizona Department of Environmental Quality funded project is to retrofit urbanized areas of the watershed with green infrastructures that will protect surface waters from non-point source pollution and improve surface water quality in Granite Creek and its tributaries by using plants and soil to slow, filter, cleanse, evapotranspire, and infiltrate runoff.
Prescott Creeks is a nonprofit organization with the mission to achieve healthy watersheds and clean waters in central Arizona for the benefit of people and wildlife through protection, restoration, education and advocacy.
