Cedar Fork Study Overview

The Town of Chapel Hill and the W.K. Dickson consulting team has initiated the Cedar Fork Subwatershed Study. The Cedar Fork study area is primarily residential and is approximately 1.4 square miles and just over 900 acres. Of the acreage, around 20% consists of impervious surface. The Cedar Fork study area also contains some of the steepest slopes in the Booker Creek watershed. Beginning in January, field crews will be conducting stream walks in the area including surveys, stream assessments, and reconnaissance through identification and analyses.

Public Education and Outreach

Opportunities will be provided to ensure residents, businesses, visitors and property owners stay engaged. Our outreach will be a two-way process for communication.

Take Our Survey – take a few minutes to tell us about any flooding or erosion issues you or your neighborhood experiences. Do you live near a stream or creek? Tell us about your observations. We also have hard copies for your use. Please contact us for copies. Click on the link for the online version.

Attend Our Events – we will host public outreach events at key milestones during the process. Visit this page often for updates and announcements.
