Sleepy Creek Watershed

Downstream worked with Sleepy Creek Watershed Association to integrate a Water Watch program within the watershed. This integration now comprises an E. coli and Fecal Coliform Bacteria Monitoring Study using WaterReporter as well as a FieldDoc integration that provides an up-to-date view of programmatic investments and the expected pollution reduction impact and progress towards their pollution reduction goals.

WaterReporter: Cacapon Institute (CI) under contract with the WV Conservation Agency and subject to review by the 319 project team, monitored Sleepy Creek and certain tributaries for fecal coliform bacteria.

FieldDoc: The Edmisten Road Project was designed to improve water quality in the creek by addressing a highly eroding streambank along approximately 800 feet downstream of the bridge at Spriggs Road, south of Berkeley Springs, West Virginia.
