Watershed Restoration & Protection Studies (319 Monitoring) - Mill Creek
The primary pollutant in the Mill Creek watershed is suspended sediment. The purpose of monitoring in the Mill Creek watershed is to document changes in suspended-sediment concentrations and loads that occur in Mill Creek or tributaries of Mill Creek before and after best management practices (BMPs) are installed. Monitoring encompasses the collection of stream flow, suspended-sediment concentration, and precipitation data to evaluate effects of restoration and remediation efforts.

There are six monitoring sites in the Mill Creek watershed. Monitoring sites are located to collect data to evaluate the effectiveness of several watershed restoration activities. Rankin County used 319 funds from MDEQ to implement BMPs in three different areas within the Mill Creek watershed. In addition, MDEQ initiated storm water compliance and enforcement actions for a commercial development area located along a tributary of Mill Creek.
