From UNC Public Radio, Chapel Hill:
Lawmakers in the North Carolina State Senate have passed a measure that scales back restrictions on landfills.
Senate Bill 328 would reduce buffers between wildlife refuges, state parks and game lands. Garbage trucks transporting material to landfills would no longer have to be leak-proof, but only leak-resistant.
From KXLH-TV, Helena:
A bat captured at the Holter Lake Campground near Wold Creek over the Father's Day weekend has tested positive for rabies, the Lewis & Clark City-County Health Department announced on Friday (June 21).
"We are concerned for anyone who came into direct contact with the bat," said Laurel Riek, environmental health specialist with the agency.
Riek explained, "Bat bites are small and not always easy to detect. Campers may have to consider rabies treatment if there's a reasonable probability of exposure. This could include sleeping out in the open at the campground. Parents should ask their children if they touched or played with a bat while they were there."
From a news release:
A new campground recently opened at Fisher Grove State Park near Redfield. The campground was moved to the east side of the James River after repeated flooding made the bridge unsafe for vehicles.
The new campground includes 22 electrical campsites, a new comfort station and a dump station. It is located near the existing playground, picnic area and golf course.
"This new campground will provide a wonderful camping experience for the Redfield area," said District Park Manager Becky Graff. "With the constant flooding the last few years, local campers have had to travel out of the area to enjoy state park campsites. Now the Fisher Grove campground is back for the remainder of the summer."
The park is still completing some final touches, but work is expected to be done by July 4.
From the Minneapolis Star Tribune:
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) wants to relocate a state park campground in west-central Wisconsin.
The master plan for Buckhorn State Park in Juneau County called for a new campground but DNR parks officials say oak wilt is killing trees on the proposed site and the area is no longer conducive to a quality camping experience.
The agency now wants to build the campground closer to the Wisconsin River's Castle Rock Flowage. Parks officials say the new site has a healthy mix of hardwood and evergreen canopy cover. The site would include 60 family campsites, including 20 electrical sites, drinking fountains, a toilet and shower building and playground equipment.
The DNR will take public comments on the relocation through July 10.
From The Associated Press:
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has reopened facilities at some Arkansas lakes that were closed because of high water due to recent flooding.
The corps' Vicksburg, Miss., district says all campgrounds, boat ramps, recreational areas and swim areas at DeGray Lake, Lake Greeson and Lake Ouachita are re-opened.
Corps officials are warning boaters, though, that debris from the recent heavy rains are still a potential danger on the lakes.
