Commission Approves 2015 Budget


Share your views and concerns with the Commission

The Pioneer-Sarah  Creek Watershed Management Commission is leading a project to protect and improve water quality in the watershed.  To better meet community needs and priorities, the Commission is conducting a study to better understand the knowledge, needs, and concerns in your community about stormwater and water quality.  We would greatly appreciate your participation in this study to help us understand how to support you in protecting water quality.

Two surveys were developed – one to reach residential landowners, the second to reach agricultural landowners in the watershed.  Please click on the one which best describes your land use. Either survey should take less than ten minutes.  We ask that you take the survey by October 7, 2013.

This is your opportunity to share your views and concerns and make your voice heard! To encourage as many people as possible to take the survey, we will be offering three gift cards to those taking the survey. The gift cards will be given to three survey respondents in a random drawing at the end of October.
