Habitat Improvement and Erosion Control Project on Coe Creek and 20 Mile Rd.

July 18, 2013

The Pine River, part of the Manistee River Watershed, is a favorite of locals and visitors alike. This cold-water system supports populations of wild brown, brook, and rainbow trout, all sustained through natural reproduction.

Coe Creek (Osceola and Lake Counties) is a key tributary to the Pine River. In 2008, residents noticed a road/stream crossing at Coe Creek and 20 Mile Rd was experiencing high amounts of erosion – the crossing was replaced just as a flood event ripped through the watershed. This caused severe damage to the downstream streambank and contributed to an artificial widening and braiding of the stream channel.

Conservation Resource Alliance and partners including the Michigan DNR – Fisheries Division, Michigan DEQ, Knoop Excavating and Four Seasons Nursery implemented several Best Management Practices to improve the site.
