Mecklenburg County Water Quality program manager, Rusty Rozzelle, spoke to the Mint Hill Planning Board June 18 about watershed districts.
“We removed some area from the Goose Creek watershed that did not belong there,” said Rozzelle. “Really, it’s a minimal change.”
Goose Creek is its own district. Clear Creek and Crooked Creek were combined and are now called the Yadkin district. The other district in the area is the Catawba. Watershed maps can be found on the Mecklenburg County website.
“It’s for the betterment of the town and the land development of the town,” said Rozzelle.
He said they did not make the changes to allow someone to develop the land.
The Planning Board will send a favorable recommendation to the Board of Commissioners on the change.
