Leon River Watershed
Leon River Watershed Coordinator Mike Marshall reviews diagrams Friday of on-site sewage systems — septic tanks — for a state grant program.
- Water workshop Aug. 21 in Hamilton
A workshop to help residents of the Leon River watershed improve and protect their water resources is from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 21 at First United Methodist Church, 215 W. Main St., in Hamilton.
The free workshop will provide an overview of water quality and watershed management, primarily in the Leon River watershed.
“Surface water in the Leon River is a critical source of water in the area,” said Mike Marshall, watershed coordinator for the Leon River and an Extension assistant with Texas A&M AgriLife Research.
“Our goal is to protect and improve water quality in the Leon by providing technical assistance and education to citizens, landowners and agricultural producers,” Marshall said.
Marshall said participants are encouraged to pre-register for the workshop online at tws.tamu.edu/workshops/registration or call (979) 862-8070.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality grant program will provide $84,000 to fix or replace up to 21 failing septic systems at a maximum of $4,000 per system, said Mike Marshall, the Leon River watershed coordinator who is applying for the grant.
