On Wednesday February 1st, 2023 from 6:00 – 7:00 pm, the City of Oregon will be hosting a Public Open House in City Council Chambers for residents to view plans and ask questions regarding the upcoming Wolf Creek Stream Restoration at Oregon Recreation Complex (BD-2.0) project. There will be a short project presentation beginning at approximately 6:10 pm.
The Stream Restoration at Oregon Recreational Complex 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 two-stage channel design will create a benched floodplain and sinusoidal low flow channel which will promote habitat features such as meanders, pools, and riffles. The project will also reduce nonpoint source pollution by intercepting agricultural drainage and capturing nutrients and sediment. The project site is in the southeast corner of the Oregon Recreation Complex, located at 5401 Starr Avenue Extension. This site provides an excellent opportunity for the public to view a stream and floodplain restoration project and learn about its benefits for water quality and Lake Erie.
