LWV Jo Daviess County (Galena, IL) has taken the lead in water planning and protection in the Galena River watershed. Bonnie Cox and Beth Baransky came to Rockford on December 2 to talk about their work, the recent recognition and future plans. The video on the right includes Beth and Bonnie's remarks and the ensuing discussion, starting at the 55 minute mark.
This blog has been reporting on LWV JDC's water work regularly - this post documents the recent award they won from the US EPA and provides links to previous posts that describe their work.
Many thanks to Beth and Bonnie for their work and their marvelous leadership in showing what can be done to protect our local water resources!
