Smith Creek Watershed Plan
The Town of Wake Forest contracted WK Dickson and Co., Inc. in 2015 to develop a watershed management plan for the Smith Creek Watershed, which comprises the headwaters and tributaries of Smith Creek, which drains into the Neuse River. This plan was developed in accordance with the nine watershed plan elements recognized by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Pursuant to these elements, the watershed management plan provides a watershed characterization and prioritized solutions to identified watershed functional deficits.
The Smith Creek Watershed is located in Wake and Franklin counties, in the northeast central region of North Carolina, east of the City of Raleigh and within the towns of Wake Forest and Rolesville.
