TOWN OF GIBRALTAR: Fish Creek Improvement and Protection Plan

Purpose

The Town of Gibraltar is sponsoring a project to develop a community based Improvement and Protection Plan for Fish Creek. Project final deliverables include: all data collected, agendas and minutes for planning meetings, and a river management plan that includes methodologies, results, and management alternatives discussion with an implementation plan. Specific project activities include: 1) Evaluate existing nutrient and flow data for Fish Creek; 2) Develop a model to estimate flow, sediment, and nutrients to Fish Creek; 3) Gather sociological information and solicit participation in the planning process; 4) Develop a 9-Key element watershed based plan and an improvement and protection plan that addresses groundwater infiltration and water flow in Fish Creek while reducing stormwater runoff. The plan will also identify strategies to address invasive species and restore and protect fishery and wildlife habitat. Special Conditions: 1) Draft sociological/user surveys must be reviewed and approved by the Department before being initiated. This scope summarizes the project detail provided in the application and does not negate tasks/deliverables described therein. Data, records, and reports, including GIS-based maps, and digital images, must be submitted to the Department in a format specified by the regional Rivers Biologist. If consultant is to provide final report, it is recommended that Grantee provide DNR Rivers Coordinator with a draft for comment on report adequacy prior to making final payment to the consultant. DNR to receive both paper and electronic .pdf copies of the final report along with, or prior to submission of grantee's final payment request.
