Improving and Protecting Our Creeks & Lakes: Prescott’s New Action Plan

Improving and Protecting Our Creeks & Lakes: Prescott’s New Action Plan

Apr 13 2019 -
10:00am to 12:00pm

In April of 2016 the City of Prescott embarked on ambitious planning efforts to study Watson Lake and the upper portions of Granite Creek Watershed. This May these two planning efforts will come to a close and produce management plans for improving the water quality of Watson Lake and many of the creeks that feed it. Matt Killeen, Environmental Coordinator for the City of Prescott, will share the findings of these studies at a presentation on Saturday, Apr. 13, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Granite Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation building, 882 Sunset Avenue, Prescott.This program is presented free of charge by the Citizens Water Advocacy Group (CWAG).

Killeen's presentation will touch on the study results and focus on the ongoing and planned pollution reduction strategies that the City will utilize going forward. He will also discuss some of the partnerships, projects, and opportunities that will impact these waters and what the public can do to help improve the quality of Prescott’s creeks and lakes. 

Matt Killeen grew up in the Phoenix area where he developed an interest in creeks and irrigation ditches and the wildlife found in them. He later studied creeks and waterways in Nepal and Washington State before returning to Arizona, where he spent 15 years working on desert creeks. He became Environmental Coordinator for the City of Prescott in 2016.
