(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) RALEIGH, N.C., Feb. 7 -- The city of Raleigh issued the following news:
City of Raleigh Mayor Nancy McFarlane has been named to the Board of Directors, Upper Neuse River Basin Association (UNRBA).
Each of the 13 member jurisdictions in the watershed elects one director and two alternate directors to the UNRBA Board of Directors. Mayor McFarlane will represent the City on the Board of Directors and will lead Raleigh's efforts to cooperatively implement the Falls Lake Nutrient Management Strategy. Mayor McFarlane has served in this capacity previously, and will replace former Council Member Randy Stagner.
While announcing the appointment during the Feb. 4 meeting of the Raleigh City Council, Mayor McFarlane expressed her support of the goals of the UNRBA and her pleasure at once again serving on the board. "Issues surrounding water supply and quality for the City are of great importance," Mayor McFarlane said, "I'm happy to be serving again and I look forward to working with our partners to ensure our water resources remain protected and provide a source of clean water for years to come."
The UNRBA was formed in 1996 to provide an ongoing forum for cooperation on water quality protection and water resource planning and management within the 770-square-mile watershed of Falls Lake. Made up of seven municipalities, six counties, local Soil and Water Conservation Districts and the South Grandville Water and Sewer Authority, the mission of the UNRBA is to preserve the water quality of the Upper Neuse River Basin through innovative and cost-effective pollution reduction strategies, and to constitute a forum to cooperate on water quality and water supply issues within the Upper Neuse River Basin.
