Friends of Peak Creek (FOPC) held their first annual open house last Thursday, May 15 at the Historic Pulaski Train Station.

New River Conservancy President George Santucci was the featured speaker for the event. In his presentation, Santucci described the Conservancy’s work for water quality and economic and recreational concerns along the entire New River watershed.

According to FOPC secretary Linda Bassett Hall, Peak Creek is a major part of the New River Watershed. Santucci also expressed his thanks for the work that FOPC is doing, and offered his and the Conservancy’s help for future FOPC projects.

Friends of Peak Creek, a 501(c)(3) non-profit citizen led group, meets on the fourth Thursday of each month at 6 P.M. at the Historic Train Station in downtown Pulaski. The meetings are open to the public.

    I noticed that they are doing work on water quality. I hope they remember the unlined land fill on draper mountain is the worst eco. problem in this county. Pulaski furniture dumped barrels of highly toxic crap in it. I personally know of people that did that for them. All of this is now going into the water table, running under ground straight to peak creak. I hope they wear a hazmat suit if they come in contact with the water. Surely I am not the only person that knows of this issue? Good luck in your project. Hope it not to little to late. Please be careful when coming in contact with the water.
