Public Meeting to discuss Cross Creek Watershed
October 18, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
We invite you to a public meeting on a Cross Creek Watershed Study, Wednesday, October 18, 2017 from 5:30 – 7:00 pm.
The Triangle J Council of Governments is leading a study on the Cross Creek Watershed in Cumberland County, funded through the NC Division of Water Resources and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Section 205(j) Grant Program. The program focuses on planning projects that aim to determine the nature, extent and causes of point and nonpoint source (NPS) pollution problems, and develop plans to resolve these problems.
With over 100 counties in the state, and an ever-increasing need to address water quality impairments, there is a real gap in comprehensive plans that can be implemented. The Cross Creek Study will examine existing data for the Little Cross Creek, Cross Creek and Blounts Creek watersheds. A draft of the narrative plan that identifies nine key elements based on available data, including pollution sources/causes, implementable reduction measures and the necessary resources to address impairments will be presented. For elements lacking sufficient data, the plan will outline the information missing, detailing the steps forward to developing a comprehensive study of the entire Cross Creek Watershed.
Join us at Fayetteville State University’s Rudolph Jones Student Center, located at 1200 Murchison Road, Fayetteville, NC 28301 to learn more. Attendants will have an opportunity to provide feedback and to share concerns and goals for sustainably managing this local watershed. The study will conclude in December with clearly defined actions to pursue funding for research and implementation in 2018 and specific roles for multi-disciplinary stakeholder collaboration.
Project Partners include: Sustainable Sandhills, American Rivers, City of Fayetteville Stormwater, Fayetteville PWC, the Cape Fear River Assembly, Middle Cape Fear River Basin Association and Mid-Carolina Council of Governments.
