The Robeson Creek Watershed Council is a group of local citizens, government entities, and other stakeholders that originally met quarterly to discuss and implement plans to conserve and protect the Robeson Creek watershed. CWEP Partners including the Town of Pittsboro, Chatham County, and others support and are involved in this Council. Protection of the Robeson Creek area is an important component of the health of the Haw River, which is a main contributor to Jordan Lake. The group has not convened in recent years but has been rejuvenated with a great Council meeting on May 25, 2017.
The team hopes to embark on many new conservation, rehabilitation, and watershed protection projects and goals moving forward. Check out the Robeson Creek Watershed Council brochure to learn more about the group, or follow them on Twitter at @RobesonCreek.
