In 2014, the Federation installed 7 large wetland pools in Church Creek to help trap sediment and absorb excess nutrients. In 2016, a large illegal dump of manure and woody debris was  discovered a mile upstream of the project. The landowner, who had recently purchased the property was informed of the problem and took action to remove the pile and block unsupervised access in order to protect the land. There are still remnants of illegal tire dumping upstream that the Federation and concerned citizens are  working to address.
