Bear Creek Project Updates:
Abandoned mine reclamation work on a 68-acre tract of land at the headwaters of Bear Creek was completed in December of 2016. A major pipeline project has also been constructed on the hillside above Bear Creek. As of late 2017, no change in water quality or flow has been realized from this activity but it may take some time for any impacts of these projects to be realized. We will continue to collect water samples until the fall of 2018 to insure we have the best representation of water quality data for this tributary.
