Morgan Creek/Little Creek Local Watershed Plan
Orange, Durham and Chatham counties

EEP collaborated with the towns of Chapel Hill and Carrboro to provide match funding for a federal 319 grant. In order to honor this obligation EEP partnered with the U.S. Geological Survey to pay for the purchase and installation and a year of operation for a stream gauge in the Bolin Creek watershed of this LWP area, a step that the plan’s stakeholders had identified as a priority.  
 

The main goal of the plan is to improve and protect functions of the watershed, including prevention of functional losses in the 75-square-mile watershed area, located in the Cape Fear River basin.  EEP has implemented several projects in the area and continues to support realization of LWP priorities. 

Local Watershed Plans:

EEP uses watershed planning to identify the best locations to implement stream, wetland and riparian-buffer restoration. The planning process considers where mitigation is needed and how EEP's mitigation efforts might contribute to the improvement of water and habitat quality in the state.

The N.C. Ecosystem Enhancement Program's mission is to restore and protect North Carolina’s natural resources for future generations while supporting responsible economic development.

EEP utilizes receipts from its programs to restore streams and wetlands where the need is greatest by working with state and local partners, including willing landowners. The N.C. Department of Transportation and other developers voluntarily use EEP to move projects forward in a timely and affordable manner.
