Watershed Summary - Accotink Creek
Management Category Description
Accotink Creek presents a challenge in management. The entire watershed is classified as Watershed Restoration Level II Area, and many opportunities for localized improvements exist. The Stream Protection Strategy Study shows that stream conditions improve slightly upstream and downstream of Lake Accotink. More research is warranted to assess the impact of the reservoir system on the mainstem environment.
Additional details for this watershed/group can be obtained from Chapter 3 of the Stream Protection Strategy Report.
