South Creek before remediation

By restoring the stream to a more natural hydrology while creating habitat for macroinvertebrates and a more beautiful environment, it addressed aspects of the Wilsons Creek TMDL, and implemented activities in the Middle James River Watershed Management Plan. Using existing water quality data for South Creek and assuming achieving 10% pollutants reduction, it was estimated that the load reduction that will be achieved from implementing this project would be: total phosphorus = 15 pounds/year, total nitrogen = 151 pounds/year and total suspended sediment = 3,975 pounds/year.
