Sound Rivers Water Quality Specialist Taylor Register joined Pamlico-Tar Riverkeeper Jill Howell in the field this week, scouting locations for water-quality monitoring in the Village of Simpson.

The sampling is part of a three-phase project for Simpson, located on Chicod Creek and a tributary of the Tar River: Phase I includes stormwater mapping for the entire village and collecting a year’s worth of water-quality and water-quantity data at multiple locations; Phase II is the development of a 9-Element Watershed Restoration Plan that will recommend stormwater improvements; and Phase III will be implementing the plan.

Sound Rivers has been contracted to do this work by our long-term partner, the Mid-East Commission, who was awarded the Water Quality Planning Grant through the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality. Taylor will be working with partners at East Carolina University to collect the water-quality and -quantity data.
