Ronnie D. Hudson was recently re-appointed as the Resident Director for Crenshaw County on the Board of Directors of the Choctawhatchee, Pea and Yellow Rivers Watershed Management Authority.

Crenshaw County Probate Judge James Perdue administered the Oath of Office to Mr. Hudson on Thursday, September 25, 2014 at a ceremony held in the Crenshaw County Courthouse.

He has served on the Board since March 2005 when he was initially appointed by the Crenshaw County Soil & Water Conservation District.

“Our board is very grateful for Mr. Hudson’s past service, and we look forward to the important contributions he will continue to make in the next four years,” said Barbara Gibson, Executive Director of the Watershed Management Authority. “His experience and knowledge of water issues make him an invaluable asset to our organization and a highly efficient representative for Crenshaw County on the Board.”

The Choctawhatchee, Pea and Yellow Rivers Watershed Management Authority is a state agency created by the Alabama Legislature in 1991. The agency is responsible for developing plans and programs relating to water resource management in the areas of water quality, water quantity, flood control, and water conservation education.

The river basin covers 2.3 million acres in southeast Alabama and includes all or portions of the counties of Barbour, Bullock, Coffee, Covington, Crenshaw, Dale, Geneva, Henry, Houston, and Pike. The Watershed Management Authority is non-regulatory and governed by a sixteen-member Board of Directors selected from the 10 southeastern counties.
