Tendick Creek Fish Passage Restoration

Ozaukee County is systematically restoring high priority watersheds that the County identifies with its ecological prioritization tool (partially funded by FFLM). This project addresses Tendick Creek, a critical link between the Milwaukee River and high quality breeding habitat for species such as Northern Pike. Outcomes include removal or remediation of four large impediments to fish passage; reconnection of up to 0.49 stream miles; and enhancement of 59.4 acres of 100-year floodplain, 60 acres of wetlands, and 19.1 acres of potentially restorable wetlands. Fisheries monitoring before and after the project will track data and contribute to future successful efforts.
