  • About 60 people learned Monday about the upcoming Lake Manitou watershed study being conducted by Arion Consulting, Indianapolis, for the Fulton County Soil and Water Conservation District.
    Arion’s Sara Peel conducted the meeting at Pleasant Hill United Methodist Church with help from the conservation district’s Glen Jones. The study is funded with a $32,000 Lake and River Enhancement grant awarded to the district.
    Peel said she’s started to collect data for the study.
    She talked about Lake Manitou and explained how the study will be conducted. She hopes for an end of the year report so those who own land in the watershed, or the district or lake association, can apply for funding for projects that would improve the lake’s quality in 2020.
