Muddy Water Watch Project

As our watershed continues to be developed at an alarming rate, the Haw and its tributaries are facing the negative impacts of sediment pollution. Increased development means an increase in construction stormwater runoff, which is the leading water pollution problem in the nation, according to a 2008 report from the E.P.A.

To protect our watershed from this pollution problem, we are re-launching our Muddy Water Watch project, partnering with county sediment and erosion control officials to document and report potential sediment violations. Join us!
