It’s that time of year again! We’re excited to announce that the CPASA Annual Meeting will be held on Thursday, October 24th, 2019, at Pennington Creek Park in Tishomingo. We will begin serving hot dogs at 5:30pm and the meeting will start at 6:00pm. In the event of inclement weather, the meeting will be held in the Student Union Ballroom at Murray State College (1009 Dormitory Rd, Tishomingo, OK 73460). Please check our website and Facebook page for updates on the weather and the exact meeting location.

 

While it sometimes seems quiet on the water front, we know that’s an illusion. CPASA continues to stay diligent in tracking the latest developments in water policy so we can keep you informed on what’s going on. The relationships we’ve worked so hard to build and maintain over the years with all of our area legislators help us to stay engaged in protecting the precious water resources of the Arbuckle-Simpson Aquifer.

CPASA’s also been working hard on a number of legislative and legal fronts and we will give a more in-depth overview of these and their current status at the annual meeting. We are also reviewing CPASA’s by-laws and hope to have any necessary amendments to these for your approval on the 24th.

Thank you again for your partnership and dedication to helping us protect the Arbuckle-Simpson Aquifer, the lifeblood of this treasured area that so many of us call home. We definitely couldn’t do it without you and look forward to seeing everyone on the 24th!

Due to a number of folks being out of power and other ongoing issues from the recent ice storms, we have decided to reschedule the annual meeting to allow everyone ample time to be able to participate. The CPASA Annual meeting will now be held on Tuesday, November 17th, 2020, at 5:30pm.

As we previously mentioned, we are needing to change the format of our meeting and, after much discussion, determined the safest way to do this is virtually via Zoom. We know you all have a lot on your plate right now and we'll do our best to keep the meeting as short as possible.

 

The majority of our discussion will be from our legal counsel, Krystina Phillips, as she reviews all of our current legal issues. Although it's been relatively quiet on the policy side of things, CPASA has been very busy as we continue to deal with issues affecting the sustainability of the Arbuckle-Simpson Aquifer. We have seen a number of applications for new mining operations and for current operations looking to expand their facilities and we remain greatly concerned about the longterm impacts these will have on the springs and streams in the area.
