MILL CREEK HABITAT RESTORATION & BANK STABILIZATION
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.
