CWF 2017 – Brown’s Creek Riparian Shading


Project  •   Documents

Brown's Creek Watershed District received a 2017 Clean Water Fund Accelerated Implementation grant in the amount of $51,525 to target the type and location of riparian restoration needed to shade three miles of Brown’s Creek, a trout stream in Stillwater, MN impaired for thermal and sediment loading, to reduce monthly mean baseflow stream temperatures by 0.5 to 1°C. The project field work was completed in 2017 and the report was completed in 2018. Four priority sites were identified for riparian shading restoration with work to begin on two of the sites (2,400 linear feet of Brown's Creek) in 2019.
