North Creek Restoration Project

Significant channel erosion in North Creek has resulted in an abrupt step in the channel’s profile east of Highview Avenue, threatening to undermine the road and recreational trail. In winter of 2022, the City will begin restoration of 1.1 miles of North Creek from Highview Avenue to Cedar Avenue. This partnership project with the Vermillion River Watershed will improve the stream by stabilizing eroded channel banks, reconnecting the channel to its adjacent floodplain and wetlands, and improving water quality through nutrient load reduction.
