In 2019, an innovative technique using in-stream stone structures was implemented to reduce stream erosion at Millbrook Exchange Park and prevent pollution from flowing into Perry Creek. After the project was completed, heavy rainfall and streamflow damaged the structures. The City has contracted with Ecosystem Planning & Restoration (EPR) to make necessary repairs to the project. Proposed repairs include raising the elevation of the streambed, armoring the structures with stone, and constructing a floodplain bench that will be planted with native tree and shrub species.
This project was originally supported through a grant from NC Land and Water Fund (formerly Clean Water Management Trust Fund).
