Cheney Lake Watershed, Inc. will present the results of a six-year study on bank erosion along the North Fork of the Ninnescah River on Thursday, Dec. 5th at 6:30 p.m in Arlington. In 2007, the Natural Resource Conservation Service helped establish 10 monitoring sites on the river or contributing streams. Since that time, the river has been subject to both drought and flooding with interesting changes in stream banks. The purpose of the study has been to determine the impact of bank erosion on the overall sediment load to Cheney Reservoir.
The presentation will include other information including the role that land management plays in bank stability. Monitoring sites are located throughout the watershed in Reno County including Goose Creek and Silver Creek.
The event will be held at the Arlington Community Building, 900 W. Main Street in Arlington. Chili and cinnamon rolls will be served at 6:30 p.m. followed by the study presentation. To help with the meal count, please RSVP by calling the Watershed office at620-669-8161, ext. 4 or emailing Lisa French at firstname.lastname@example.org.
