Spring 2019 flood damage

An unusual combination of environmental factors in spring 2019 caused damage to many stretches of this and neighboring creeks, including portions within the habitat improvement site(s).  MNTU is in the process of reviewing the project site and developing repair plans, which may include design revisions.  Appropriate repairs will be made after amended permits are secured.
