Multi-Area Streambank Restoration Project

The City of Hendersonville has undertaken a project to restore approximately 11,000 linear feet of streambanks throughout the area, which will protect existing infrastructure while improving stream health and water quality. The purpose of the project is to help promote stormwater quality measures, improve the overall health of Mud Creek - an impaired water and to protect existing property and infrastructure from further streambank erosion. A map of the proposed project area is provided here.

In order to successfully complete the project, the City is seeking participation from affected landowners and will require some conservation easements. This will ensure that the significant project investment is protected for years to come.

We are hosting an open house for interested residents to drop in for questions and information regarding this streambank restoration project. The open house will be on August 24 from 5:00-7:30pm (drop-in) at City Operations, 305 Williams Street, Hendersonville NC 28792. The open house is the public's best opportunity to learn about the project, provide feedback to the design team and ask questions before plans are finalized. Please feel free to contact Brent Detwiler at (828) 697-3060 with any questions.
