Project Goals and Objectives

The goals for this project include water quality improvements specifically related to sediment and improving overall riparian habitat for diverse fish assemblage in the Chalk Creek watershed. This project was funded by the Watershed Restoration Initiative. Project partners include a private landowner and Trout Unlimited.

Structure Construction Elements

We built beaver dam analogs (BDAs) using untreated wood posts (2-4" diameter) pounded into the stream-bed at the height of the ordinary high water mark and then filled in by volunteers using on-site materials including sustainably harvested willow branches, mud, rocks, and clumps of sod.
