Watershed Summary - Little Rocky Run & Johnny Moore Creek
Management Category Description
All of Johnny Moore and the middle portion of Little Rocky are classified as Watershed Protection Areas. Despite this overall ranking, benthic community integrity at many sites was still rated as poor, and further research is needed to determine the specific factors influencing this measure of system health. Because it drains into a designated protection area, the upper portion of Little Rocky Run is classified as a Watershed Restoration Level I Area. The lower portion of Little Rocky Run is classified as a Watershed Restoration Level II Area. It is also designated as an Assessment Priority Area, reflecting the uncertainty over the dramatic change in condition seen between monitoring sites along the system's mainstem.
Additional details for this watershed/group can be obtained from Chapter 3 of the Stream Protection Strategy Report.
