Environmental Services is working to stabilize Johnson Creek, protect and bury an exposed sewer pipe and manhole, and improve water quality and stream habitat by moving and restoring the creek channel and by restoring natural floodplain functions.
November 17, 2014 Construction Update
Work to Date
The contractor has completed grading the site and has hydro-seeded for erosion control. The trail and overlooks are nearly complete. The photo below shows one of the overlooks and the creek. Recent rains tested the new creek channel with high water and it performed well.
The Environmental Services Watershed Revegetation Program will begin staking the creek banks with live willow cuttings and will continue planting the site in February 2015.
