The North Fork Watershed Project, established in August of 2002, is committed to working with the community to find creative solutions to this problem.  Solutions to the water pollution will take into account the rich cultural resources in the watershed.  The area boomed in the early part of the 1900’s with the coal mining and timber industries.  These industries are gone leaving these adverse environmental impacts as well as many historical landmarks.  Some of the watershed project’s goals include coordinating historical and educational projects and working with state and federal agencies to improve water quality in the North Fork and the amount of life the river can sustain. The North Fork Watershed Project was created by Judy Rodd, executive director for Friends of Blackwater Canyon to clean up the acid mine drainage in the North Fork of Blackwater River.
