The Habersham County Courthouse is still causing Sediment and Erosion problems but we're encouraging all parties to implement a few new practices (application of polyacrylamide to increase flocculation of fine sediment, and hydroseeding of steep slopes) to demonstrate how we can better solve these types of problems in the future.
We'll be working on an E&S Best Management Practices brochure this fall.
|The Soque River Watershed Association recently assumed the former programs of the Keep Habersham Beautiful organization such as cleanups, the adopt a road program, and recycling and trash reduction efforts. We've added a page to our website where you can get information on projects under the KHB PROGRAM such as the location of our County recycling facilities (including hours and what can be recycled), a fruit orchard project funded by Keep Georgia Beautiful, information on composting, and our "in the works" project to launch a REUSABLE CUP project. Check it out.|
