[ARCHIVED] Creek Restoration Update, May 4

Environmentally Sensitive Areas
As the civil construction phase for the creek restoration project has been complete, revegetation and landscaping are still underway.
To date, over three thousand willow stakes were planted along the creek banks, and initial seeding and mulching along the banks will occur by Spring run-off. At this stage, the young willows and seedlings are extremely vulnerable to damage - please allow time for the habitat to establish, by limiting activities in these environmentally sensitive areas.
Following Spring run-off (expected June to August), crews will continue with the second phase of seeding and revegetation in the area.

In April, the creek was stocked with trout in Meadow Park. On the advice of local trout experts, the fish will temporarily be fed natural fish food, until the aquatic habitat is reestablished. Please note that Meadow Park is still under construction and closed to the public. Thanks for your continued cooperation, as the trout get settled in their new habitat and the park continues to be built!
