About the Smith Branch Watershed Alliance
The Smith Branch Watershed Alliance, formed in December 2013, plans to address immediate and long-term issues facing the Smith Branch in the northern part of the City of Columbia.
The alliance is eager to work in concert with future development in the area, including the Bull Street State Hospital redevelopment project, to ensure an overall plan for the Smith Branch to become a community asset. The stream, which originates nearby the hospital site, stretches across Columbia’s North Main Street neighborhoods and empties into the Broad River just north of the Columbia Canal.
The public is encouraged to attend meetings to provide input – look for meeting confirmation and updates via our Facebook page!
