To help residents protect local water resources, this summer we are hosting a virtual series titled “How your Backyard Activities Affect Your Lake.” Each program has information essential for home and property owners in Pike County on how to have a positive impact on water resources. The decisions made by each individual within a watershed can have a major impact on everyone else. We are all connected to each other through our water source, so it is up to every individual to take care of this shared resource.
Now that these programs are virtual, you can watch them whenever you have time! So if you missed it when it was live, you can catch up on the series on our Videos page or on our YouTube Channel.
