**update! The location has been changed to Jack Smith Creek.

New Bern’s Board of Aldermen approved the installation of a Sound Rivers’ Trash Trout on Lawson Creek.

Sound Rivers Executive Director Heather Deck appeared before the board on Monday night to talk about the installation of the second of three Trash Trouts in the Neuse and Tar-Pamlico Watersheds. The first was installed last week on Jack’s Creek in Washington. After a few questions about the location, as well as how and how often the Trash Trout will be clean out, the board unanimously passed a memorandum of understanding with Sound Rivers to allow the project to move forward.

The installation date of the Lawson Creek Trash Trout has been set for May 31.
