Bassett Creek Watershed Management Commission

I enjoyed my first meeting today as a commissioner with the Bassett Creek Watershed Management Commission (BCWMC). Participating in monthly meetings seems like a small token of appreciation for all the enjoyment my family receives from living adjacent to Bassett Creek Park.  It felt good to join a dedicated group of citizens representing the many communities through which Bassett Creek flows.

The primary functions of the BCWMC are to minimize the risk of flooding and to improve water quality.  Thanks to successful projects over the past thirty years flooding has been greatly minimized!  Our primary efforts are currently focused on improving water quality within the watershed and restoring the shoreline along Bassett Creek.
