Stream and Wetlands Restoration

Fayette County Public Schools had the vision to improve 700 feet of Mill Creek in Lexington, Kentucky. The stream was an eroding, urban ditch that divided the Millcreek Elementary School playground and was a safety hazard the school children were not allowed to get near. The goals of this design/build project were to improve water quality, create more and better habitat for animals and aquatic life, as well as provide a facility for environmental education.

Key Features:

  • Design/build
  • Riparian buffer
  • Rain garden
  • Outdoor classroom
  • Hyporheic treatment aquifer
  • Natural stream channel design
  • Wetlands construction
