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]
