Culvert Restoration News

Culvert restoration progress continues around the watershed.  Recently, a large restoration project was completed on Albert Mattson Road, in the Town of Ashland.  The Marengo River tributary stream that crosses the road has been an ongoing source of problems and expense for the township because high spring flows cause flooding, erosion and road failure.  A grant to BRWA from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, along with funding and services from the State of Wisconsin and Ashland County, led to the completion of restoration in July.  This is a significant long-term cost saver for the township, and is another great step in reducing the amount of damaging sediment flowing into the Marengo River.
