City Plans Northeast Creek Improvements

The City of Durham’s WATERways for November announces:

“The City of Durham has a new plan to help reduce sources of bacteria in Northeast Creek. Fecal coliform bacteria can come from the waste of humans, livestock, urban and rural wildlife, waterfowl and other birds, and pets. Reduction strategies include improving septic system performance, reducing sanitary sewer overflows, promoting pet waste pickup, and preventing Canada Geese waste near lakes and ponds. “

The full plan is Total Maximum Daily Load Response Plan for Fecal Coliform Bacteria in Northeast Creek(Cape Fear River Basin), Durham, North Carolina , ( February 22, 2019).
