Community Meeting to present a clean up plan December 5

 Calling all Spout Run Watershed Residents:

Over the past 8 months, The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation and partners have been working closely with local residents to develop a clean up plan for Spout Run, Roseville Run and Page Brook. Currently, the creeks are con- sidered unhealthy due to high amounts of fecal bacteria in the water. This means that people face a greater chance of illness or infection when they go swimming in the creeks. A large amount of sediment in the streams is also negatively impacting aquatic life. Input from local residents was used to develop the draft plan to address these issues, which will be presented at the meeting. This will kick off a 30-day public comment period for the plan. The meeting will also include:

  • A Chili Cook-Off sponsored by the C-Spout Run Partnership
  • A presentation from students at the Powhatan School
  • A video screening by The Downstream Project
  • Numerous displays from project partners 

Please join us for a meal with friends and neighbors (free of charge) and a great opportunity to learn more about your local streams!
