Clear Creek Acquisition and Floodplain Reconnection
The project includes acquisition of flood prone properties as a risk reduction measure and in preparation for future projects. The goals of this project include developing a collaborative, multi-benefit solution to flooding in the Clear Creek floodplain; establishing the best habitat potential for the floodplain; establishing best use for agriculture in the floodplain and continue stakeholder involvement in the long term. The Clear Creek Strategy plan has been developed to provide a framework for the project based on current circumstances and goals of the project. Current work includes research project development to identify how fish utilize the Clear Creek system as well as identifying agricultural needs and potential actions in the area.
