This summer the Western North Carolina Alliance (WNC A) will be continuing the Muddy Water Watch by monitoring logging operations, eroding roads, trails, campsites, and off road vehicle areas. Problems with these areas can add pollution to critical cold-water streams. More than 20 percent of the French Broad Watershed is in the National Forest, so WNCA members say this work is important to ensure protection of these headwater streams.
Onsite training will be offered to review forest best management practices so that volunteers will be prepared to identify sources of sediment pollution.
