This gives us even more reason to protect this remarkable natural treasure. Sedimentation and nutrient pollution from the activities in the watershed could have the opportunity to negatively impact the creek and its water quality. By using Best Management Practices (BMP’s) and sensible riverbank development, it is up to all of us to protect the health of this amazing creek.
Other Threats to Water Quality
- Nonpoint Source Pollution
