OZAUKEE COUNTY: Restoration of Aquatic Connectivity - Mineral Springs

Purpose

Ozaukee County will remediate up to two large-scale and up to two non-structural impediments to fish and aquatic life passage. Conduct remediation of Division Road Crossing: The preliminary anticipated remediation of the Division Road crossing is to utilize a series of cross vanes (i.e., rock bands) into the channel to backwater the structure and incorporate native substrate to increase channel roughness and concentrate baseflow. This will eliminate the perching effect, while mitigate high velocities in spring and excessively shallow baseflow. Conduct remediation at Oakland Avenue: The preliminary anticipated remediation at Oakland Avenue is to remove the accumulated rubble and former abutments. These activities will eliminate channel constrictions and pervious fill issues, allowing for free ingress and egress of migratory fish species. Ozaukee County will complete all requisite reporting and provide project records. The project deliverables include the following: 1) site photos (before, during, and after construction), and professionally engineered project plan sets (if required for permitting) indicating that key passage criteria (e.g., flow velocities, channel slope, etc.) were met. 2) detailed expenditure records, and any other items as requested. 3) project results from ongoing County education and outreach programs, including press releases, presentations at local, regional, and national conferences, articles in County and partner newsletters, and regular updates on the Program\2019s website, Facebook, and Twitter pages.
