Hello everyone!

I wanted to invite you to attend a public meeting that is taking place this
Monday, May 10th, at the Dearborn County Adult Center.

The meeting, as the attachment attests, is a part of a regional effort to
update the Dearborn County Water Quality Management Plan--a plan which has
not been updated in a couple of decades. As you may know, Water Quality
Management Plans are required by the federal Clean Water Act to identify
water quality problems in metropolitan areas and to recommend how to address
them, in the process avoiding duplications of effort by local sewer agencies
and stretching limited taxpayer dollars. Preparing a current water quality
management plan with updated data, findings, and recommendations will build
on the work of many entities within the county and the state, and should
enable water quality improvements by identifying shared concerns and
priorities for action.

OKI has been the designated agency for water quality management planning in
Dearborn County for over 30 years. Very recently, OKI obtained a grant to
bring the plan up-to-date.

The public meeting on May 10th represents the public first opportunity to
become involved in this planning process. The details for the meeting are as

Date: MONDAY, May 10th, 2010
Time: 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Location: Dearborn County Adult Center
311 West Tate Street
Lawrenceburg, IN 47025
