Saving Dennis Creek
Length: 15 minutes
Learn how the people of Dennis Creek, Franklin County, decided to
save their 14 square mile watershed that drains into the Potomac River.
A partnership of farmers, local officials, students and residents
installed stream bank fencing and built replacement wetlands and streamside
buffers. They also developed nutrient management plans for farms and
started a stream monitoring program.
