Watershed Management Planning and BMP Implementation Project

The Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission is working with local stakeholders and organizations in the Chickasawhatchee Creek Watershed and Coosawattee River-Carter's Lake Watersheds to monitor impaired streams in these two watersheds and identify sources of pollution.

Once monitoring is complete, a Watershed Management Plan (WMP) will be developed for these two watersheds using EPA’s “Handbook for Developing Watershed Plans to Restore and Protect Our Waters” and GA-EPD’s Watershed Planning Guidelines.

After WMPs are created and updated, BMP implementation will occur in Chickasawhatchee Creek, Coosawattee River Carter's Lake, and Scull Shoal Creek Watersheds.

Once public meetings are scheduled, dates will be posted here...

 

The Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission, GA EPD, and Nutter & Associates will be hosting a second public meeting to discuss the watershed management plan, results from our monitoring in 2018, and solicit feedback.

Stakeholders like yourself can provide valuable information and data regarding their community, impaired water bodies, potential causes of impairments, and management practices and activities which may be employed to reduce the impacts of the causes of impairment.

Join us for our 2nd public meeting Wednesday, January 16th at 1:30pm at the Gilmer Public Library- 268 Calvin Jackson Dr, Ellijay, GA 30540.

Since this meeting is open to the public, we encourage you to invite any other parties that would be interested.

Brushy Creek Section 106 Project

The Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission is working with local stakeholders and organizations in the Brushy Creek Watershed to monitor impaired streams and identify sources of pollution.

Once monitoring is complete, a Watershed Management Plan (WMP) will be developed for these two watersheds using EPA’s “Handbook for Developing Watershed Plans to Restore and Protect Our Waters” and GA-EPD’s Watershed Planning Guidelines.

Although BMP implementation will not be completed with this grant, the WMP will allow the watershed to be considered for future funding.

Once public meetings are scheduled, dates will be posted here...
