The headwaters of Davis Creek in Kanawha State Forest.

The Davis Creek Watershed Association is a non-profit, all-volunteer group working to improve environmental quality in the Davis Creek watershed in Kanawha County, West Virginia. We are located near Charleston and South Charleston on the south side of the Kanawha River.

MISSION STATEMENT

The goal of the Davis Creek Watershed Association is to protect and improve the environmental quality of the Davis Creek watershed through community action, education and outreach, and cooperative efforts with landowners, businesses, and governmental agencies.

Toward that goal, our volunteers conduct stream and roadside cleanups, remediation and reclamation of illegal dump sites, educational activities, work cooperatively with landowners to  promote good land stewardship and, when necessary, work with appropriate local and state governmental agencies on law enforcement matters. We have conducted water quality monitoring since 1996 and we currently participate in the West Virginia Save Our Streams program.

OUR TRASH TALLY TO DATE:  277.7425 tons of trash and 2,359+ tires.

The Davis Creek Watershed Association is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
WORKING WITH SCOUTS ON SOIL & WATER CONSERVATION
MERIT BADGE

This year we worked with the Boy Scouts of Troop 152 on their Soil & Water Conservation merit badge. This included classroom and on-site sessions, followed by a beneficial project.
The Scouts chose to work with the City of South Charleston to conduct a stream cleanup on Trace Fork in Little Creek Park. On October 15 the Scouts, their leaders, several DCWA board members and some George Washington High Eco-Club students staged the cleanup and with logistical help from the City of South Charleston, they gathered up 50+ tires and dozens of bags of trash.
