The Secret Underground Water System of The Landings will be the topic of the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) of Skidaway’s meeting and seminar to be held on Monday, April 12, beginning at 4:00 pm via Zoom. Sean Burgess, The Landings Association Public Works Director, will be the speaker. Zoom meetings are similar to previous meetings in format, including a monthly raffle for valuable prizes. Advance registration is required. Registration is available through the CCA of Skidaway web site, www.ccaskidaway.org and “Click Here to Register.” A link to the Zoom feed will be sent to you prior to the meeting. Sean will talk about and show The Landings’ underground water and lagoon systems and how all of the components tie together to create the great Landings environment. He will cover the relationship between TLA and the Skidaway CCA and how the entities work together to make the lagoons a great community amenity and will highlight the cooperative efforts of the Lagoon Committee and the Public Works Department in monitoring salinity, seining, electro fishing, stocking, and the underwater structures to enhance the local fishing environment. The Landings Association Public Works Director Sean Burgess joined the team in 2004. His long tenure and experience at The Landings led to his promotion from Environmental Manager to Public Works Director in July, 2019. His primary duties include contract and project management, administration, and the strategic planning of the department to include Environmental, Construction, Building and Grounds, and Fleet. A 2002 graduate of Lakeland College (Sheboygan, Wisconsin), Sean holds a BA degree in Biology. Before joining the Association, he was a Fishery Technician and then an Aquatic Biologist, both in the state of Wisconsin.

Additional tickets can be purchased in quantities of 1 ($5), 3 ($10), or 7 ($20) through the web site, and the proceeds will go to support CCA programs in the coming year.
