Moores Creek is a tributary of the Rivanna River that flows through the City of Charlottesville and serves in some places as the southern border with Albemarle County.

The spelling without the apostrophe is correct. [citation needed]


Fixing impairment

For several years it has been known that Moores Creek in the urban portions of the community is impaired and is contaminated by fecal coliform. [1]

In 2012, the Thomas Jefferson Soil and Water Conservation District began offering cost-share assistance to help farmers and homeowners in the Moores Creek watershed pay for septic system repairs and conservation programs to help restore water quality. [2]

Trails

The Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission is planning and constructing the 5th Street Trail Hub to serve as a trailhead for an enhanced trail heading west toward Azalea Park. This hub will be near the confluence of Moores Creek and Biscuit Run. [3]
