Declaring October 18, 2006 as World Water Monitoring Day in Kansas City, Missouri.

WHEREAS, Kansas City formed a partnership with the United States Geological Survey to collect and analyze water quality data in the Blue River Basin; and

 

WHEREAS, this water monitoring data will be used to inform regional decision-makers about current conditions of water quality and to develop plans to improve water quality; and

 

WHEREAS, Kansas City recognizes nonprofit organizations such as the Blue River Watershed Organization for its efforts to teach children about water quality through monitoring and clean up activities; and

 

WHEREAS, Kansas City is joining cities in 50 other nations across the world to celebrate World Water Monitoring Day on October 18, 2006, and encourages all citizens to do their part to improve the quality of water throughout the year; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:
