Fund For Lake Michigan

Pike River North Branch – Stream Channel, Riparian Buffer and RSC Design

  • Grant Recipient: Root-Pike WIN
  • Amount: $149,500
  • Year: 2019
  • Watershed: Pike River
  • Focus Area: Stream Restoration

Two projects on one of Lake Michigan’s most impaired tributaries address an important link in a larger effort that has already improved aquatic habitat and dramatically decreased flooding. The product will be two final designs: an engineering plan to incorporate a Regenerative Stormwater Conveyance (RSC) system into the expansion of HWY KR, and a plan to restore 1,550 linear feet of stream channel and 10 acres of riparian buffer by replacing invasive vegetation with native perennials and vernal ponds.
