Watershed Summary - Pohick Creek
Management Category Description
The Pohick Creek watershed represents a range of biological and habitat conditions from high to low levels of degradation. The higher quality ratings at the lowermost site along Pohick Creek mainstem elevate the priority of the watershed as a whole. Middle Run and South Run represent the highest scoring areas in the watershed and are classified as Watershed Protection or Watershed Restoration Level I Areas. Efforts in the remainder of the watershed, all of which is currently classified as Watershed Restoration Level II Area, should focus on mitigating erosion problems that are generating the excessive sediment deposition that is so widespread within the drainage area.
Additional details for this watershed/group can be obtained from Chapter 3 of the Stream Protection Strategy Report.
