MILL CREEK HABITAT RESTORATION & BANK STABILIZATION

Mill Creek Bank - Before  Mill Creek Bank - After

In spring 2019, the Town of Richmond partnered with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Ontario County Soil & Water Conservation District to implement a stream restoration project along Mill Creek within Sandy Bottom Park. This restoration project was designed to significantly reduce sediment inputs, improve aquatic functions, and reduce the potential threats to private residential homes and public infrastructure. By using nature-based design structures like toewood and stream rock structure, this project stabilized eroding banks while providing improved fish habitat.
