OSTAC Presentation: October 22
On October 22, OSTAC heard a PRESENTATION on the Plaster Reservoir Open Space Management Plan's preliminary findings and recommendations. Key initial recommendations include:
- Updating the drainage report as the sedimentation analysis indicates that the reservoir's storage capacity has decreased;
- Managing cattails;
- Adding native vegetation along the edges of the reservoir;
- Placing wildlife habitat features such as bird/bat boxes; and
- Providing educational signage.
Staff is already pursuing additional floodplain analysis, and dredging is likely in the future pending the results of the floodplain analysis. OSTAC was supportive of the research. A draft report will be presented to OSTAC on January 28, 2021.
