As a result of action taken in
1974 to dissolve the Third Creek Watershed Improvement District, the
Iredell Soil and Water Conservation District and Iredell County assumed
responsibility for maintenance of the eleven sites. An on-site
inspection is conducted annually in early spring to determine
maintenance needs for each of the 11 sites.
The Iredell Soil and Water Conservation District, through the Third
Creek Watershed flood prevention system, began rehabilitation on Third
Creek Watershed site number 9 on October 17, 2011 and completed the work
on November 1, 2011. The project involved removing and replacing the
existing valve, valve stem, and access door. Work was also performed on
the stilling basin, maintenance boundary fence, and the access road.
This project replaced the original items that were installed in
This is the 9th dam out of 11 that has had some type of rehabilitation work.
