Community Meeting to present a clean up plan for TYE RIVER, HAT CREEK, RUCKER RUN & PINEY RIVER.

Calling all Tye River Watershed Residents:

Over the past six months, The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality and partners have been working closely with interested watershed residents to develop a clean up plan for the Tye River and its tributaries.  Currently, the creeks are considered unhealthy due to high amounts of fecal bacteria in the water. This means that people face a greater chance of illness or infection when they go swimming in the creek or get water in their eyes, ears or mouth. Using input from local residents, a plan has been developed outlining the best ways to address these problems in the creek.  This meeting is your chance to provide additional input on the plan and learn more about the Tye River.

Join us for an ice cream social, sponsored by the Thomas Jefferson Soil and Water Conservation District and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation while you learn what you can do to help the Tye River!
