Warm Springs Run is an 11.8-mile stream in Morgan County, WV, that empties directly into the Potomac River. Draining nearly 10,000 acres, the watershed is small compared to the neighboring Sleepy Creek and Cacapon River watersheds. Although the Run flows parallel to US Route 522 from it’s headwaters to its mouth, there are only a few places where it can be seen from the road.
The WSWA mission is to improve and protect the waters within the Warm Springs Watershed by educating the community on local water issues and performing service projects. We are dedicated to conserving, and monitoring the health of the Warm Springs Watershed.

Since its inception in 2008, the Warm Springs Watershed Association has made great progress in reversing that conclusion. To list but a few examples: the WSWA has participated in the WV Make it Shine Program, which involves pulling trash and debris out of the Run each April. In the process, the community has begun to pay attention to and care about this little stream.
Mile Tributary Stream
We have planted close to 400 trees, which help to reduce the risk of flooding as well as to prevent eroded and polluted matter from reaching the Run. We have done three series of educational programs, reaching more than 400 people, to educate the public about the Run, its problems and its possibilities. Working together, the people of Morgan County make Warm Springs Run a wonderful resource to everyone. Please become a part of that effort.
