Eastern Shore Watershed

Mobile Bay Shoreline of the Fly Creek Watershed


The Eastern Shore Watershed (HUC 031602050205) has multiple subbasins primarily draining directly to Mobile Bay. Primary named tributaries within the watershed include Yancey Branch, Rock Creek, Fly Creek, Point Clear Creek, and Bailey Creek.

Initial conversations with Watershed stakeholders indicate primary concerns related to encouraging responsible development, reducing sediment and pathogen inputs, and allowing for improved recreational access.
