The Third Creek Stream Restoration Project contains approximately 7,601 linear feet of stream channel restoration, riparian restoration, channel relocation and in-stream enhancement. Project objectives include restoring Third Creek and one unnamed tributary to a referenced, stable morphologic dimension, pattern and profile and improving in-stream and riparian habitat. The project reaches of Third Creek and the unnamed tributary are impaired due primarily to high-energy erosive flows during storm events, historic channel alteration, excessive nutrient loading, and impacts to riparian buffers. As a result of channel instability and lack of appropriate stream pattern, aquatic and riparian habitat functions have also been impaired. Stream channel restoration activities will include reconstructing a new channel in the floodplain, reshaping stream banks, installing natural bank protective structures, installing log vanes or rock vanes, or other necessary natural materials deemed appropriate to reduce bed and bank erosion. Riparian restoration measures will be implemented on the newly constructed channel and consist of invasive species removal and seeding and planting native herbaceous and bottomland hardwood trees.
