Phase 2

NOW UNDER WAY!

Work has begun on Phase 2 of the Muddy River Flood Risk Management Project. Over the next three years, you can expect to see a wide range of integrated activity, from dredging to ease the flow of Our Muddy, to bank stabilization, protection of historic structures and landscape features, control of invasive species, habitat creation for fish, turtles and amphibians, planting of wetland and riparian vegetation, trees and shrubs—and more. We invite the entire community to follow this important flood control, environmental restoration and stewardship project.
