Two creeks in McDowell County make NC list of imapaired waterways

From the McDowell News:

The state is seeking comments on its 2012 list of North Carolina’s rivers, streams, lakes and estuaries with impaired water quality and will use those comments to develop strategies for decreasing pollution in the affected waters.

Similar to the results of previous assessments, the 2012 list shows that about one-third of the waters assessed in the Tar Heel State have at least one impairment due to factors such as stormwater runoff.

The 2012 list contains two creeks in McDowell County.
