Dead Dog Creek Restoration Project, Phase 2 - CLOSED
The Lake County Stormwater Management Commission is now seeking sealed proposals for the project designated as the Dead Dog Creek Restoration Project, Phase 2. The project is located along Dead Dog Creek, between Sheridan Rd. and a point approximately 300 feet downstream of Ravine Dr., in the Village of Winthrop Harbor, Illinois.
The project includes: the installation of rock riffles to provide grade control and additional aquatic habitat; the installation of rock step pools to provide grade control, prevent further channel incision, and remove barriers to fish passage; the installation of rock toe to stabilize eroding streambanks; the restoration of moderately eroded streambanks by re-grading to 3:1 (H:V) or flatter and re-vegetating with native plant seed, native plant plugs, and erosion control blanket; the restoration of moderate-to-severely eroded streambanks by treating with vegetated geogrid lifts, re-grading to 3:1 (H:V) or flatter, and re-vegetating with native plant seed, native plant plugs, and erosion control blanket; the installation of rock points to deflect erosive stream flows away from streambanks that are susceptible to erosion; the installation of wing deflectors to redirect stream flows toward the center of the stream and restore aquatic habitat; the installation of tree rootballs to provide bank stabilization and additional aquatic habitat; the installation of rock checks to stabilize eroding swales and gullies tributary to the stream channel; and the installation of native plant seed and native plant plugs throughout the project reach. It will also include clearing and tree removal; the installation of temporary soil erosion and sediment control practices; the installation of temporary stream crossings; and, the removal and offsite disposal of concrete and other debris. Upon completion, this project will address the deteriorating conditions along Dead Dog Creek and will provide a long-term solution to the streambank erosion that is occurring within the project reach.
