Addressing water quality issues at Milford Lake

Advertisement

The need to protect water quality, recreation and water supply storage at Milford Lake is the focus of a meeting hosted by K-State Research and Extension.

The “State of the Lake 2013” event is set for Oct. 17, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Wakefield Methodist Church.

The main discussion points are:

How are water quality problems impacting recreation, water storage and other uses at Milford Lake?

What’s causing these problems?

What’s the potential for more outbreaks of blue-green algae?

What can farmers and city residents do to protect water quality in the lake?

Tom Stiles and Trevor Flynn from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment will give a presentation as will Rolf Harms and Marvin Boyer with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The Wakefield Methodist Church is located at 406 Sixth St., Wakefield, Kan. A free dinner buffet will be provided.

To attend, please RSVP by Oct. 11 to the River Valley Extension District Clay Center office at 785-632-5335.

The State of the Lake 2013 event is sponsored by K-State Research and Extension as part of the Lower Republican/Milford Lake Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy project.

For more information contact Robert Wilson at 785-532-7823 or rmwilson@ksu.edu.
