Duncan Creek PWS Plan - Nine Key Element Plan

Purpose

The Duncan Creek Priority Watershed Project plan assesses the nonpoint sources of pollution in the Duncan Creek Watershed and guides the implementation of nonpoint source control measures. These control measures are needed to meet specific water resource objectives for Duncan Creek and its tributaries. The purpose of this project is to reduce the amount of pollutants originating from nonpoint sources that reach surface water and groundwater within the Duncan Creek Priority Watershed Project area.

Objective

The primary objective of the project is to reduce nonpoint source pollution to the surface water and groundwater, and to enhance and protect the water quality of streams in the Duncan Creek Watershed. In the watershed, 95% of the sediment deposited in streams annually is derived from agricultural upland erosion, 2.5% is from streambank erosion, and 2.5% is from gully erosion.

Outcome

Reduction of overall sediment delivery by 50% and overall phosphorus load by 49%.
