2019 Habitat Protection and Restoration: Targeted Land and Capital Efforts (Including Barrier Removal) - Habitat protection and restoration

Project Summary

The Sand Creek is a cold water stream located in Ottawa and Kent County Michigan. It is designated as a Trout Stream by the Michigan DEQ, but has a history of impairments due to flow regime alterations and sedimentation. We will conduct an inventory of all road stream crossings in the watershed, a habitat assessment at key locations, and to identify areas of concern where future restoration efforts may be beneficial.
