5.22 Carrboro should adopt a strategy and set of policies to protect all of our creeks, streams, ponds, and lakes.
The Town and the community have been involved in initiatives for many years to help monitor, protect and restore local creeks. The primary tool the Town employs to protect creeks and streamside environments is the Land Use Ordinance. Watershed scale efforts require attention to creeks, streamside environments, and the land draining to creeks. Visit these pages and links to learn more about these efforts. The separate Stormwater page is closely related.
