MountainTrue Co-director Julie Mayfield has a new guest column in this week’s issue of the MountainXpress where she discusses the challenge posed by Duke Energy’s revised Western Carolinas Modernization Project. If we are going to move the region not just beyond coal but toward a fossil-fuel-free future, we must work together.
For seven months, from April 1 to October 31, over 25 volunteers took more than 575 E. coli water samples to ensure the waterways of the French Broad River are safe for swimming. This data was collected from 22 sites throughout the watershed, from Rosman in Transylvania County to Hot Springs in Madison County. Read on to find out which sites made our lists for the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
MountainTrue wants to thank all the dedicated volunteers who have helped make this another successful year for our biomonitoring programing. Our nine teams of volunteers sampled 21 sites throughout Henderson County, and you can expect the results of this testing in the coming weeks.
