Three Creeks Farm

Status

The Three Creeks Farm site is in Davidson County near the community of Midway and within the Yadkin River Basin. The project includes the restoration and enhancement of five stream channels as well as the restoration and preservation of riparian wetlands in the Abbotts Creek watershed. All stream channels and wetlands have been impacted by hay production, livestock herd access, and livestock grazing. During the project, nutrient input will be decreased by filtering runoff from the adjacent pasturelands through buffer areas, the conversion of active pasture areas to riparian buffers, and improved denitrification. Fecal coliform will be decreased by excluding cattle from the wetland and streamside riparian zones. The wetland restoration will include planting with native hardwood trees and plugging the ditches to increase the time water remains on-site.

The project is currently under development and expected to be constructed in 2023.
