Since 2013, we have been committed to the quality of our watershed in Central Arkansas.

 

Our Mission

The Lake Conway Point Remove Watershed Alliance is dedicated to working with individuals, groups and governmental agencies to educate and promote the importantce of the watershed, and to develop and implement plans to restore and enhance the integrity and quality of the watershed for present and future generations.

how we started

The Lake Conway Point Remove Watershed Alliance began out of meetings organized around concerns for the future of Lake Conway, and tributaries feeding it that were impacted by non-point source pollution.  As time progressed and concerns grew over the future of the larger watershed, advocates brought Federal, State and local agencies together to apply for 319 grant funding from EPA to 1) develop an Urban Watershed Plan for the City of Conway; 2) begin the development of a 9-element plan for LCPRW; 3) organize the Alliance as a non-profit organization committed to continuing the community led efforts to improve watershed quality and remove LCPRW from the list of impaired watersheds in the State.  LCPRWA is 100% volunteer based comprised of representatives throughout the watershed.


“LCPRW is one of 11 impaired watersheds in the State due to the level of Pollution in our lakes and streams. Many people don’t know that, and my hope is if you are reading this now, YOU will join our efforts and make your voice heard. Become a member today and help us make a difference for tomorrow!”
— Scott Meek

What We've Achieved

LCPRW Alliance received a $75,000 grant from the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission's (ANRC) 319 Nonpoint Source (NPS) Pollution program to take an expanded look at water quality in their watershed.

What happens to donations

There is no paid staff at LCPRWA, so 100% of donations go to further the mission of the organization to reduce non-point source pollution throughout the watershed.  We accomplish this through Outreach & Education, Water Monitoring initiatives, and collaborating with local and regional agencies supporting projects that further this mission.
