Arkansas’ alligator gar experts learned recently that Conway Corporation, a utility services provider for the City of Conway, plans to build a sewage treatment plant on Tupelo Bayou by Arkansas River. Experts worry that the project could harm the largest gar population in the state.
Conway Corporation will be receiving public input on the Tupelo Bayou Wastewater Treatment Plant project until Monday, September 6, 2010. Mark Spitzer, a University of Central Arkansas professor and gar authority, is encouraging everyone with an interest in conserving this important natural resource to write to CEO Richard Arnold, Conway Corporation, P.O. Box 99, Conway, AR 72033.
