Carters Creek: Implementing Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs)
In August 2012, the commission approved a TMDL Implementation Plan for Carters Creek. The I-Plan was developed by people who live and work in the watershed. These stakeholders identified a need for further assessment of Carters Creek and its tributaries.
This project will survey the watershed to identify possible sources of bacteria pollution. Information gained in the survey will be mapped and stored using a GIS database. Further monitoring of water quality will provide a more robust data set for determining good courses of action for improving recreational conditions.
