‘Field Notes’ blog expands to explore Shoal Creek’s water management issues

October 20, 2016  | By Shoal Creek Conservancy

We are very pleased to announce Andy Sobchak will be guest blogging this fall under our Field Notes blogging banner, covering all topics related to water management. Andy is our first guest blogger in the Field Notes space and will be adding to the wonderful narrative provided by naturalist and Conservancy board member Ted Lee Eubanks. Field Notes will continue to expand in the coming months with added perspectives from technical experts in our community.

Flooding is a core concern of the Conservancy and with the City of Austin’s recent release of the Flood Mitigation Task Force final report and initiation of the Shoal Creek Flood Mitigation Study, we are excited to have Andy help deconstruct challenges facing our watershed.

Andy is a water resources engineer, writer and photographer and has worked on water projects in the United States, Canada and Africa. He has been a volunteer with the Conservancy for several years and was our Interim General Manager in 2015.

If you have any questions about water management in Shoal Creek – or in general – post your query in the comments section below, or send Andy a message through our contact page. You may see your question featured in an upcoming post! (Remember, there are no bad questions.)

Stay tuned to Andy’s blogging by bookmarking Field Notes, and through Facebook and Twitter.
