Using Wetland Creation and Natural Stream Channel Restoration to Provide Water Quality Improvement and Protection for the South Branch Cascade Creek
The purpose of this project is to construct wetland basins on the Meadow Lake Golf Course to provide water quality improvement on a previously untreated branch that flows into the upper end of Cascade Creek. The wetland basins created will provide stormwater treatment, sediment storage and flood attenuation that will complement the overall South Branch of Cascade Creek project.
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
The South Branch of Cascade Creek Turbidity Reduction Project will construct three wetland retention structures within the upper half of the watershed for water quality improvement including sediment reduction, flood attenuation and wildlife habitat improvement. The project will construct wetland basins on the Meadow Lake Golf Course to provide water quality improvement on a previously untreated branch that flows into the upper end of the stream channel restoration project. The funds will also allow us to provide additional stormwater attenuation for a branch of the creek that is primarily developed and very flashy, thus having the potential, without treatment, to damage the current restoration project in progress.
