Stewarts Creek Stream Restoration

Another project of ours near Mount Airy involves stream restoration for tributaries of Stewarts Creek. Stewarts Creek is the largest water source for Mount Airy and is one of two streams supplying water to the treatment plants in the area. Our work at Stewarts Creek began in October of 2019 and finished April 2020.
