The Little Alamance Creek Healthy Streams Cooperative intends to promote community involvement and awareness about Little Alamance Creek (LAC) to improve the water quality within our community. The City of Burlington, the City of Graham, and NC Department of Transportation formed a partnership committed to restoring the health of the LAC Watershed. The project partners hope to educate the public on stormwater related issues and inform the community about the importance of water quality. The restoration process involves fostering stormwater pollution prevention by creating a culture of environmental stewardship for stormwater mitigation and management now and into the future.
The Little Alamance Creek watershed is a highly developed urban watershed located in Alamance County, North Carolina, within the upper Cape Fear River Basin. The watershed is approximately 15.9 square miles in size and includes portions of the cities of Burlington and Graham. Little Alamance Creek flows southeast into Big Alamance Creek, approximately three miles upstream of its confluence with the Haw River.
