OZAUKEE COUNTY: Mineral Springs Creek - Park Street Fish Passage Restoration

Purpose

Ozaukee Co. will replace a four barrel culvert crossing, which is a low-flow fish passage barrier, with a full culvert replacement. Project outcomes include: (1) one fish passage impediment removed, (2) finished installation of new passable culvert, (3) 0.72 miles of upstream channel opened to fish passage, (4) aquatic life access to 25.3 acres of wetlands, (5) aquatic life access to 11.0 acres of floodplain/floodway and (6) 7.6 acres of potentially restorable wetlands reconnected directly to Lake Michigan. The project deliverable will be a final report which documents: (1) detailed project information posted under the Ozaukee Co. Planning & Parks Department Fish Passage Program website, (2) examples of public relations outreach of project activities in print, radio and television media, (3) County presentations and project tours to educate public officials and watershed patrons on the effects of stream impediments and (4) articles on the project in County, community and NCO newsletters.
