The Chambers-Clover Creek Watershed Council (CCWC) provides an opportunity for local agencies and citizen groups to coordinate their efforts to benefit the watershed. The council is committed to improving the health of the watershed by working to improve fish habitat, water quality and foster a sense of stewardship among watershed residents.
