Fossil Creek Stream Rehabilitation Project#
Start date: October 1, 2014
Project purpose: Stabilize eroding banks, create sustainable native fish and wildlife habitat and improve water quality in the stream.
To correct erosion and water quality problems, stream banks were flattened and reinforced to prevent further erosion. The rebuilt slopes were replanted with native grasses, plants, and trees to provide new aquatic and riparian habitat for fish and wildlife. The stream channel was relocated in select areas to prevent further movement.

Closing crawl space vents and covering the crawl space floor with at least 6 millimeters of plastic can reduce soil moisture.
Watering in the early morning or late evening when there's less wind reduces water loss.
Timers or sensors can help save money on outdoor lighting.
