The Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association, City of Durham Stormwater Services, American Rivers, Downtown Durham, Inc., and the Triangle J Council of Governments are conducting a study in the Ellerbe Creek Watershed to identify opportunities for small stormwater retrofits (e.g. green roofs, rain gardens) with the potential to improve water quality in the creek. As part of this study, several field crews will be assessing downtown-area properties from public right-of-ways during the week of December 3-7, 2012. The fieldwork will take place in the areas shown below, which include parts of the Trinity Park, Old North Durham, and Central Park neighborhoods.
