Open House Planned on Cardwell Branch Watershed
The public is invited to an open house Tuesday, August 21 to discuss the Cardwell Branch Master Plan. The meeting is set for 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Walt Branch Library, 6701 South 14th Street. A presentation will begin at 6 p.m.
The Cardwell Branch is southwest of Lincoln and includes Yankee Hill Lake. The watershed planning study is a continuation of the floodplain mapping project that was completed by the U.S. Geological Survey. The study will develop long-term planning tools and improvement projects to guide sustainable growth in the region. The presentations will include information on flood issues, stormwater quality and stream stability.
