Forbes Creek Restoration

 
  • The rehabilitation of Forbes Creek, a heavily modified watercourse within the Grand River watershed, included complete reassignment of the creek and removal of several drop structures to improve fish passage.
  • WSP designed a natural channel and several habitat features, such as vernal pools and meadow marsh complexes, to restore a valley altered through extensive grading.
  • We used extensive plantings of woody and herbaceous material to naturalize the valley, provide shelter, habitat, and food sources for local wildlife populations, and screen from encroaching urbanization.
