Phase II Red Clay Dam: Deer Creek Tributary Restoration Through Aging Sediment Retention Structure Removal
Projects and Practices 2014
A 78.4 ton/yr reduction (1%) of TSS and 90.2 lbs/yr of total phosphorus is anticipated with this project.
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
This project will fund the stream restoration of a failed, 30-year old sediment control structure in the Deer Creek subwatershed using natural channel design methods to restore the stream to a stable state. Since the dam breached an estimated 78 tons of sediment is transported annually to the turbidity-impaired Deer Creek.
