Dead Dog Creek Phase II Stream Restoration Project

The project restored the ravine and stream east of Sheridan Road and north of 7th Street. The project included water quality and sediment control bioengineering best management practices to stabilize the stream channel and banks, restored riparian area, and improvement in quality of water as it flows to the Spring Bluff Forest Preserve and Illinois Beach State Park into Lake Michigan. 

The $675,401 Phase II project was funded by a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Great Lakes Restoration Initiative grant awarded to the Lake County Stormwater Management Commission (SMC).  SMC, in cooperation with the Village of Winthrop Harbor, completed Phase I on the west side of Sheridan Road in 2013. 

If you have questions about the project, contact Mike Prusila, or call 847.377.7713 or 847.377.7700.
