Silver Creek Watershed Plan

Request email notification when page changes

The Silver Creek Watershed Plan is an opportunity to identify strategies to improve water quality and reduce the impacts of flooding in the Silver Creek watershed. The Silver Creek watershed is one of ten watersheds in Madison County and the watershed plan is an important component of Madison County’s Stormwater Plan. By documenting existing conditions and developing recommendations and strategies for best practices to improve water quality and to reduce flooding, the plan will be a roadmap for communities, agencies, and landowners for future improvements. The plan will also identify potential sources of funding. Improved water quality provides for healthier community water supplies, increased opportunities for recreation, and healthy habitats. Flooding has tremendous costs such as damage to homes, business, and infrastructure such as roadways. Strategies for mitigating flooding will help reduce costs for homeowners, businesses, and taxpayers.
