BCWMC Plymouth Creek Restoration
The Plymouth Creek Restoration Project will improve water quality in Plymouth Creek and Medicine Lake, the creek's primary receiving water. The project will reduce total phosphorus and suspended sediment in Plymouth Creek and Medicine Lake stemming from streambank erosion. Streambank erosion is a common source of pollution, particularly in developed landscapes where flows in streams are considered flashy and can easily scour unprotected and disturbed streambanks. It is estimated the project will reduce total phosphorus and suspended sediment loading to the creek by 52 pounds and 45 tons per year, respectively.
