Black Earth Creek was severely damaged from the large rain events and flooding that occurred in 2018 and 2019. Dane County has been working with local partners and landowners on finding creative ways to help restore and stabilize the damaged streambanks.
This project will focus on that part of the stream which flows through Walking Iron County Park and will search for ways in which the adjacent land and stream corridor can provide opportunities for flood mitigation. In-stream habitat will also be considered as part of the project.
Planning and design work will start in the summer of 2022.
