Stream Improvements

The Stream Improvement Program offers assistance by designing and constructing small projects to restore stream channels damaged by high water or flooding events and to stabilize streambanks affected by erosion at sites where there are imminent threats to the structural integrity of homes, businesses and industries. The primary objective of this program is to provide increased public safety on a smaller scale than the larger flood protection type projects and to reduce high sediment loads and prevent them from being transported downstream and re-depositing elsewhere. For additional information on the Stream Improvement Program, please contact Bill Kcenich at 717-783-0369.
