The City of Oregon has started construction of the Wolf Creek Stream and Floodplain Restoration project at the Oregon Recreation Complex. This project seeks to reduce degradation of stream benthic communities (BUI 6) and improve fish habitat (BUI 14a) by stabilizing 5,000 linear feet of eroding and incised stream banks in Wolf Creek. The project will also create a two-stage channel with benched floodplain and sinusoidal low flow channel which will promote habitat features such as meanders, pools, and riffles.
Work is expected to continue through Spring 2024. There will be temporary closures to sections of the bike path through the Recreation Complex during the project. Detour signage will be posted. And bike path traffic will be rerouted using existing paths throughout the recreation complex.
If you have any questions about this project or any other stream and wetland restoration projects in the City of Oregon, please contact the Department of Public Service at 419-698-7047.
