CATARACT SPORTSMEN'S CLUB: Dustin Creek Habitat Improvement Project

Purpose

The goals of the project are to reduce the streambank erosion by placing riprap at necessary locations. The erosion of the stream bed itself will also be reduced by placing gravel beds immediately upstream of the Rock Wiers at strategic locations. The DNR's LaCrosse office did a stream survey in the summer of 2001 and will conduct another at a later date to compare the results. Project results will be shared with the public through media coverage -- local newspaper and possibly an outdoors television episode. A final report will be submitted to the River Protection Program. The DNR will be provided with both a paper and electronic copy of the final report. Information will be disseminated to the public as described in the grant application.
