|On October 17th and 18th the US Environmental Protection Agency Region III toured §319-projects in the Deckers Creek and Cheat River watersheds. In addition §319, participants also toured WVDEP's Office of Special Reclamation restoration efforts. This included the Muddy Creek treatment plant and Glade Run doser, both of which have a significant impact on the lower Cheat watershed.
Project partner include: Friends of Deckers Creek, Friends of the Cheat, WVDEP's Office of Special Reclamation, WVDEP's Watershed Improvement Branch Nonpoint Source Program, US Environmental Protection Agency's 319-Program, Office of Surface Mining and local landowners, whom without their cooperation much of the restoration would not be possible.
