Credit River Protection Plan
This project will promote land and water treatment practices, including wetland restoration, riparian vegetation management, geomorphic (stream stabilization and grade control), livestock exclusion, native grasses, and rain gardens. Also included are three specific geomorphic (stream/grade) stabilization projects in the Hidden Hills Park area of Savage, a wetland restoration in Savage, and finishing the Ponds Park Storm Water Reuse Project. Metrics or targets for this objective include: installation of 30 rain gardens, 70 acres of natural practices (i.e., wetland restoration, native grass or riparian vegetation management), the completion of 3-4 geomorphic practices (stream stabilization or grade control), and 1 storm water reuse project. The bulk of the education/outreach effort, however, will be used develop and implement a program targeting small hobby farm and other large-lot residential land owners, to include both broad-based and individual (e.g. door-to-door) marketing and outreach components.
