More About Fearrington Water
At our November Green Scene meeting, we heard an enlightening presentation by Haw Riverkeeper, Emily Sutton, who outlined the Haw River Assembly’s four-decades-long commitment to preserving and protecting the 110-mile-long Haw River watershed. Emily pointed out that the Haw River is one of 3 tributaries to Jordan Lake. And the other two—Morgan Creek and New Hope Creek—are more important to Fearrington residents, because they empty into the northern end of Jordan Lake. And it is the Town of Cary water treatment facility, on the east shore of the northern part of the lake, just north of Highway 64, from which we in Fearrington get our drinking water.
At our December 13 Green Scene meeting, at 11 am at The Gathering Place, we will hear Jamie Revels, the Town of Cary utilities director, explain the logistics (including monitoring and periodic testing, and testing results) of the water system between the Cary intake and our homes. Mr. Revels is a professional engineer who has been with Cary for more than 24 years and has served as utilities director for more than 14 years.
All residents who share a concern for the quality of our drinking water are encouraged to attend this (free) event.
