Have you seen all the new recreational access areas across the Catawba-Wateree River Basin? As part of the Comprehensive Relicensing Agreement agreed in 2006 and new license obtained by Duke Energy in 2015, thousands of acres of land will be conserved, dozens of recreational amenities are being added or improved, flow schedules are adjusted, and water quality is improved. The Catawba-Wateree Relicensing Coalition is the group that was formed to bring the community stakeholders around the region together to help negotiate these changes and to ensure that they are completed as promised.
Join us on Friday, May 19 at the Catawba Riverkeeper's taproom, The River Room, in McAdenville for an update on the progress and a look into projects still to come. A happy hour and discounted paddling opportunity on the South Fork River will follow the meeting for those who are interested. Catawba Riverkeeper will host a 1.5-hour paddle which includes a sit-on-top kayak, paddle, and life vest along with shuttle back to The River Room.
