Mission: Monday Creek Restoration Project (MCRP) is a partnership committed to improving watershed health for the benefit of the community.
The partnership was formed in November 1994. The Monday Creek Watershed encompasses 116 square miles in portions of Athens, Hocking and Perry Counties.
Types of water quality impairments in the Monday Creek Watershed include acid mine drainage, improperly treated wastewater, sedimentation and illegally-dumped trash. Our most recent restoration project was the installation of a doser in Jobs Hollow. Volunteer opportunities include tree plantings and trash clean ups.
Monday Creek Restoration Project is a program of Rural Action, a membership based 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Rural Action is a regional, multi-issue community development organization committed to the preservation of Appalachian Ohio for future generations. Rural Action’s members, staff and volunteers actively work on community based, grassroots, planning and development; environmental preservation and education; sustainable agriculture and forestry, and waste stream reorganization.
