DUNN COUNTY LAND CONSERVATION DEPARTMENT: Elk Creek Streambank Stabilization

Elk Creek, a tributary to the Lower Chippewa River, in south eastern Dunn county, is classified as an Outstanding Water Resource by the WDNR. This stream supports a healthy brook and brown trout population and offers excellent angling opportunities. Elk Creek flows through a glacial lacustrine deposit overlain by sand and gravel outwash. This situation causes widespread slope instability and therefore natural streambank erosion. This project would stabilize one of the worst eroding sites on this portion of the stream and overhead bank covers would provide additional habitat for trout. Sediment delivery to Elk Creek Lake would be reduced.
