Final project mailer
During restoration, gentle twists and turns were added to the steam path. These meanders slow the flow of the water and reduce erosion.
The stream bed was enhanced by adding deeper pools and some shallower, rocky sections. Native plants were added to the banks. This project, along with other Storm Water Services projects in the McDowell Watershed
, will stabilize about 15 percent of the source of sediment now affecting McDowell Creek and McDowell Creek Cove.
