Lynchburg College Awarded 30,000 on Blackwater Creek Project

Lynchburg College has been awarded a 30,000 dollar grant to research the Blackwater Creek Watershed. The grant that is funded by the the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, will seek through analysis what is needed to reverse the enviromental degradation in this tributary to the James River, that eventually affects the Cheasapeake Bay basin.

Lynchburg College, along with other partners will be conducting this 12 month study, in order to evaluate how to improve the water quality, and other enviromental factors, along the Blackwater Creek watershed. This is considered a first step in detailing what is needed in a long range plan.

Dr. Tom Shahady, assistant professor of environmental science, will serve as project director.
