Overview

The Reedy Creek Stream Restoration is intended to improve water quality within the headwaters of the Reedy Creek watershed. There are approximately 40,000+ feet of stream running through both private and public property in and around the project area. The streams in this area are in various conditions ranging from stable to badly eroding. There is potential to restore, enhance, and/or preserve the streams in the project area to improve or protect water quality. This project will also create, enhance, and protect forested riparian areas and aquatic habitat.

Wildlands Engineering, Inc. is the design-build engineering firm for this project.  
North State Environmental, Inc.​ is the design-build contractor for this project.
