Dr. Eve Brantley, a Professor in the Auburn University, College of Agriculture, Department of Crop, Soil and Environmental Sciences, was the guest speaker at the May 4 CPYRWMA Board meeting held in New Brockton, AL. She provided an update on the Sustainable Irrigation Expansion in the Choctawhatchee-Pea Watershed Basin program.

The project will improve plant health and vigor, improve soil health, and protect basin water quality. The project seeks to directly reduce damages to resources of concern by providing localized sustainable water management across approximately 16.800 acres in the basin.
