Eastwood Lake Subwatershed Residents: Take This Survey!
Do you live, visit or work in the pink areas of this Chapel Hill map? If so, your valuable input on water quality, drainage or flooding issues in your neighborhoods is requested by Sept. 20.
As part of the Stormwater Management Master Plan, the Town of Chapel Hill Stormwater Management Division and project consultants W.K. Dickson request those who live, visit or work in the Eastwood Lake Subwatershed - including Shadowood Apartments, Timber Hollow Apartments; and Forest Creek, Coker Woods, Coker Woods West, Coker Hills and Eastwood Road subdivisions - to take a survey about flooding or drainage problems that may exist in their neighborhoods. This input will be used in the final report and recommendations for watershed improvements in the Booker Creek Watershed. For more information on the subwatershed studies within the Booker Creek watershed, visit www.bookercreekplan.org
