Join us April 11 at 7 pm at the library!
Corvallis and Benton County planners are anticipating substantial increases in our population. At the same time, climate scientists are forecasting increased precipitation and flooding in the winters and increased heat and droughts in the summers. Both growth and disasters will place more stress on our streams, rivers, drinking water supply, wastewater treatment, and ground water.
Preparing Our Water Systems for Growth, Disaster, and a Healthy Environment
Wednesday, April 11, at 7 pm
Corvallis-Benton County Public Library
This special program will provide a look at four projects that are under way to address our future water quality and availability. Speakers include the following:
- David Eckert (Corvallis Sustainability Coalition Water Action Team) will speak about the Dunawi Creek Headwaters Regeneration Project.
- Laurel Byer (Benton County Public Works) will talk about daylighting a portion of Dunawi Creek, associated with the 53rd Street Railroad Overpass.

Water is basic to our well-being and our survival. Please join us for this opportunity to find out what’s happening locally with this life-giving resource that we tend to take for granted.
