The St. Joseph River Basin Commission and the Michiana Area Council of Governments (partners with the Michiana Stormwater Partnership) will hold a public meeting at the Elkhart Conservation Club in Elkhart, IN on Monday, January 25, 2016 at 7:00 pm. The purpose of the meeting is to inform all interested persons about the beginning of a new study on Cobus Creek watershed. Attendees will also have an opportunity to share local knowledge about areas of interest in the watershed which will be incorporated into the study. The study will look to gain a better understanding of Cobus Creek watershed's environmental health, identify water quality issues and potential improvement projects, and suggest resources in the watershed that may benefit from preservation. Cobus Creek watershed includes portions of Cass County, Michigan and Elkhart and St. Joseph Counties, Indiana as well as Cobus Creek, Garver Lake, and Pleasant Lake.
