Abstract : Old Field Swamp is located in Robeson County, North Carolina, and flows along the eastern town limits of Fairmont. Mill Branch is a tributary of Old Field Swamp and flows through Fairmont. Old Field Swamp outlets into Hog Swamp about 1.5 miles southeast of Fairmont. The project will reduce flooding in the Old Field Swamp and Mill Branch area, resulting in improvements in agricultural conditions and decreases in damages to business establishments, residential property, and roads. It will not eliminate flooding and this fact should be published annually in order that the public will be appropriately informed. However, it does provide an adequate outlet for drainage works to be accomplished by local interests and lands that were formerly unusable may be put to some use.
