WHO ARE WE?
Our members are mostly Davis Creek watershed residents. They include business owners, contractors, professionals, doctors, teachers, retirees, scientists, recreational visitors, students, and many more. The group was founded in 1995 by a group of local stakeholders who were concerned about the trash/illegal dumping and loss of stream habitat that were affecting their watershed. The group was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 1996.

KANAWHA STATE FOREST POND SAGA CONTINUES...
The WVDEP hosted another virtual meeting to provide an update on the Kanawha State Forest pond project. A stream activity permit from the U.S.Army Corps of Engineers is pending and the State Historic Preservation Office will require some type of mitigation to compensate for the removal of the dam.
WVDEP is looking to the Kanawha State Forest Foundation’s plant experts for recommendations on type and sources of native plants for reclaiming any stream bank areas to be disturbed. Construction is expected to begin in 2021, and the WVDEP will do a pre-construction walk-through with the Kanawha State Forest Foundation and Forest Superintendent. There will be a 60-day public comment period and the project is expected to go out for bids in early spring 2021.
