Document Description
The Mud Creek Diversion Canal Maintenance Project consists of removing unconsolidated material that has accumulated at existing bridges and addition of boulders to canal walls. Recent accelerated erosion of a glacier in the headwaters of Mud Creek has discharged a large quantity of sediment to the lower reaches, raising natural turbidity levels and threatening bridges and the Mud Creek Diversion Canal. The project involves removal of excess sediment at the bridges and placement of boulders to protect the integrity of the canal walls. The beneficiary of the project is Wyntoon Timberlands, LLC.
