Brozofsky Creek & Platte Rd Crossing Replacement

July 1, 2014

The nonoperational Tamarack Trout Farm was among the top problems in the Platte River Watershed. A complex set of ownership and use patterns had resulted in a diversion of natural flow, excessive sedimentation, and degradation of the natural wetland and creeks.

The stream that supplied the Tamarack Trout Farm with water, Brozofsky Creek, is groundwater fed, and fisheries surveys have confirmed that it supports a self-sustaining population of brook trout. This creek was highly impacted by the conditions at the former trout farm.

CRA and partners completed restoration of one of the road/stream crossings on the creek at Platte Road, just downstream of the former trout farm. A new larger culvert was installed to handle additional water flow.
