Click below for a link to a great article by the King County weed program about noxious plants beginning to emerge. The photos are very helpful for weed identification. Take a look and if you see these weeds, contact the Polk SWCD or Rickreall Watershed Council.
This lighthearted animation tells the story of groundwater: where it is, where it comes from, and where it goes.

Check your faucets at home — do any of them drip? Maybe it’s just a small drip — how much water can a little drip waste? True, a single drip won’t waste much water, but think about each faucet in your home dripping a little bit all day long. What if every faucet in every home on your block … in your town … in your state also dripped? The drips would add up to a flood of water wasted down the drain.
Use this interactive tool to find out how much water you could be saving!
