Big Creek Riparian Mitigation Site - 2018 - Mitico

Big Creek Riparian Mitigation Site – 2018

The Big Creek mitigation site is located in Lincoln County, Missouri and protects the riparian corridor of over one mile of Big Creek. In addition to riparian restoration and protection, the site includes a total of 1,900 linear feet of streambank stabilization using a variety of techniques including longitudinal peak stone toe protection, rock vanes, brush layering, and live willow staking.

This approach to streambank restoration directs flow away from actively eroding banks and helps the stream heal itself through deposition of sediment in areas that were once eroding. Vanes and brush layering also create fish habitat and will help restore the biotic integrity of the site. By restoring this portion of Big Creek, important fish and wildlife habitat will be protected, and valuable farm ground will be preserved for two landowners.
