A comprehensive study of Deeds Creek is now underway! The study was initiated as a joint project of The Watershed Foundation and the Pike Lake Association. Additional partners include the City of Warsaw and the Kosciusko County Surveyors Office. The largest source of funding is the IDNR Lake and River Enhancement (LARE) program.
A meeting to share the goals of the Engineering Feasibility Study on Deeds Creek and to discuss anticipated field investigation activities was held online on Wednesday, February 24th, 2021. The meeting was streamed live at warsaw.in.gov/watchcitymeetings and a recording can be viewed at this same location – it’s called “Pike Lake Public Meeting.”
The study will identify and determine the feasibility of bank stabilization along Deeds Creek in Kosciusko County, Indiana. The local engineering firm Cardno, Inc. out of Walkerton, Indiana will identify and prioritize critical reaches of stream bank erosion by walking the banks of the drainage and assessing erosion. Access to the properties along the drainage will be limited to Deeds Creek and the banks immediately adjacent. After the field activity is complete, Cardno will determine the feasibility of various streambank treatments by communicating with the potentially impacted landowners, county drainage officials, the local sponsor, and the regulatory agencies having jurisdiction on Deeds Creek.
If you have any questions about this project, please contact Ross St. Clair, P.E., Cardno, Inc. at 260-579-0337 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
