Wicomico Creek Watchers Reveal 2012 Status Of River

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md - The Wicomico Creek Watchers unveiled the 2012 status of the Wicomico River.

"We see some signs that things are looking better in the Wicomico River. It's not completely healthy but we think a lot of this improvement has something to do with the fact that we had very low rainfall. So this could change pretty quickly with a lot of rain," says Judith Stribling, guest speaker and biology professor.

The Wicomico Creek Watchers has been active for 11 years and their main goal is to improve the water quality of the Wicomico River.

"When you start coming in the city limits of Salisbury and you start producing these little stands of timber or these little areas of buffer, you start slowing down the water and people care about that You're going to see it. You're going to see a reduction in the waste water treatment plants the amount of work that they have to do. If you can lower cost and people have more trees that's more oxygen that's more carbon that's sequester it's just a very big deal" says project forestor Matt Hurd.
