A stream in the east is getting a makeover as part of a stream restoration project that broke ground Monday.
The purpose of the project is to restore about 10,00 feet of stream on Adkin Branch in Kinston.
Officials say the project will allow for better water quality, reduce flooding in the area, and give the animals there a better habitat.
Project officials say not only will it bring some jobs to the area, but it will also look better.
Construction began Monday and the project should be finished by October 2009.
