Roan Creek Watershed Phase II, TN: Wallace Branch

The Wallace Branch project on Roan Creek has been completed.  This is part of the Tennessee Department of Agriculture (TDA) 319 Nonpoint Source Grant Program to establish Best Management Practices (BMPs) for the control of nonpoint source pollution and improvement of water quality.  We completed streambank sloping and planting and installed shoreline protections including j-hooks and boulder toes along approximately 500 linear feet of streambank on the property.  This property is one of many along Roan Creek that BFEC has worked on as part of the 319 Program.  Check out some of the before and after photos below:
