Project Details

Funding support from the GLFT improved fish habitat and water quality on an impaired tributary to Kids Creek in the Grand Traverse Bay watershed. The Watershed Center worked with the Munson Medical Center to daylight a section of creek on the hospital's new Cancer Center campus by replacing underground culverts and channelized ditches with a natural meandering channel, replacing two street culverts with open bottom bridge structures, installing in-stream habitat and establishing a riparian buffer and floodplain.
