Friends of Lake Monroe Public Meeting Report
Thanks to everyone who was able to join our public meeting on April 27th at the Monroe County Public Library! Dr. Eric Barefoot gave a great presentation about his research studying sediment movement in rivers and floodplains. He spoke about the challenges between balancing natural sediment flow and flooding with protecting our buildings and other infrastructure; the use of a variety of tools including satellites, drones, and DIY sensors to measure sediment movement; and the work he just started looking at sediment movement in a section of North Fork Salt Creek and its floodplain along the west end of Kent Road. The event was recorded by Community Access Television Services (CATS) and is available here: https://catstv.net/m.php?q=12379. The presentation starts at about 3:15 and the section about North Fork Salt Creek starts at 26:37.
