Final Programmatic Report Narrative Road-Stream Crossing and Riparian Restoration in the Muskegon River Watershed (MI) #0501.16.052960 Submitted By: Muskegon River Watershed Assembly
Three road stream crossings were replaced and over 130 riparian acres reforested in the Bigelow Creek watershed, Michigan to begin a whole-system approach to restoring aquatic organism passage and stream function (Figure 1). The road-crossing improvements reconnected over seven miles of high-quality cold-water habitat and reduced sediment loading by an estimated 8.3 tons/year with upstream movement of Salmonids visually observed in 2018. More than 6,000 trees in the Bigelow Creek and Cedar Creek watersheds have been planted on more than 4,000 lineal feet of stream and river corridor to protect the waterways from solar radiation and increased temperatures while decreasing runoff through improved soil infiltration.
