 McDowell Creek Watershed

Project Summary

Mecklenburg County completed a watershed plan for McDowell Creek in 2006.  The plan is a ‘comprehensive roadmap for the management and restoration of surface waters in the entire watershed.’  Mecklenburg in partnership with Town of Huntersville, NC Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the NC Ecosystem Enhancement Program is using NC CWMTF and USEPA 319 funds along with their own Storm Water Services fees to implement the watershed plan.  Specifically, they are retrofitting existing development by installing bioretention basins (raingardens) and stormwater wetlands.  Currently, Mecklenburg County continues to collect ambient, storm water, benthic macroinvertebrate, fish, and stream habitat data at numerous sites throughout the McDowell watershed including McDowell Creek Cove on Mountain Island Lake.  A Quality Assurance Project Plan for this data collection was recently approved (July 23, 2009).
