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 will 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 will stabilize eroding banks while providing improved fish habitat.

Seneca Park Zoo's 2018 Environmental Innovation Award in the Civic/Nonprofit category was awarded to the Honeoye Inlet Restoration Partnership, a consortium of stakeholders including the Nature Conservancy,  U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Finger Lakes Community College,  NYSDEC, Ontario County Soil & Water Conservation District and the Honeoye Lake Watershed Task Force. The inlet restoration project uses natural solutions to reduce nutrients entering Honeoye Lake by 30% annually, decreasing one key factor that contributes to algae blooms. Learn more.
