Beautiful Buffalo River Action Committee Meeting Scheduled

NORTH LITTLE ROCK - The Beautiful Buffalo River Action Committee (BBRAC) will hold its fourth quarter meeting at the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) on December 5, 2017, at 2:00 p.m. The meeting will take place in the ADEQ Headquarters Commission Room located at 5301 Northshore Drive in North Little Rock.

Items on the agenda include an update on the Buffalo River Watershed Management Plan by the Arkansas National Resources Commission (ANRC), and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) will give a presentation on the Arkansas Harmful Algal Bloom Workgroup.

BBRAC was established by Governor Asa Hutchinson in 2016 to develop an Arkansas-led, non-regulatory approach to identify opportunities to protect and maintain water quality in the Buffalo River Watershed. The Arkansas Department of Health, Arkansas Agriculture Department, Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism, ANRC, and ADEQ are the state agencies that comprise the committee. The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and Arkansas Geographic Information Systems Office are supporting partners.
