Home / Local Sanford, NC News / Chatham County is maintaining its stream protections


 PITTSBORO–As the Chatham County Board of Commissioners considered changes

in the county’s Watershed Protection Ordinance, more than a dozen

residents  urged the board not to weaken existing protections.

Commissioners were considering changing the protections on ephemeral

streams and following  public comments, the board put the matter to vote.

In a 3-2 vote, the board approved changes that opponents said would

jeopardize drinking water quality in Jordan Lake.
