Central Lincoln Peoples Utility District
2129 N Coast Hwy, Newport, OR 97365
The public is invited to a talk by Lisa Brown at the MidCoast Watersheds Council meeting on Thursday August 4th, 2016 at 6:30 pm in Newport, to learn about instream flow protection to help protect salmon, steelhead and other wildlife. The meeting will be held in the public meeting room at the Central Lincoln PUD building, located at 2129 N Coast Hwy in Newport, across from the Safeway complex. Refreshments will be served.
Lisa joined WaterWatch as a Staff Attorney in 2004. Lisa’s background includes being a researcher for the aquatic division of the U.S. Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station in Corvallis. She also worked with Northwest conservation groups on watershed and aquatic habitat protection projects for many years. Lisa’s WaterWatch work has included successfully litigating cases at the Oregon Court of Appeals and the Oregon Supreme Court. These cases pertained to the legal requirement that adequate streamflows are protected for imperiled fish when old municipal water permits are developed. Her talk will provide background on instream flow protection in Oregon and how to improve the state's drought toolbox to protect streamflows and fish.
We hope you can join us on July 7th.
