  • This graph displays the Fish Biotic Integrity (IBI) within areas of the Pike River that were Restored and compares it to areas that were Unrestored (between the years 1990-2009). The mean Fish Biotic Integrity observed within the Non-Restored areas of the stream  Red Line The mean Fish Biotic Integrity observed within the Restored areas of the stream  Green Line The marked difference between the Restored and Non-Restored is shown in the Relative Improvement  Purple Line This graph shows that the restoration applied to the Pike River was having a positive effect on the Fish Biotic Integrity.
  • Transcript

    • 1. Village of Mount Pleasant – Storm Water Utility Pike River Improvements Project
    • 2. Pike River Improvements Project• Project is divided into 9 phases• Each Phase is approximately ½ mile in length, stretching over 5 miles through the Village of Mt. Pleasant• Construction began in 2001• Phases 1-5 are complete• Phase 6 is currently being constructed
    • 3. Pike River Improvements Phasing • Municipal Boundary • Phase Limits • Watershed Boundary • Major Roadways
    • 4. Pike River: Pre-project Conditions Phase 8
    • 5. Primary Goals• Flood Control with Expansion of Flood Channel to Keep Flooding within Corridor.• Restoration of Riverine Corridor with Buffer Strips.• Restoration of Aquatic Habitat with In- Steam Habitat Structures and Improved Substrate.• Recreational Corridor Development with Trails• Water Quality/TSS Removal
    • 6. Flood Control• Each Phase involves expansion of the flood channel to control floodwaters.• Three Phases (Phase 1, 4 & 9) also include large flood storage areas.• Construction of Phases 1-3 resulted in complete or partial release of floodplain restriction on over 120 properties.
    • 7. Phase 1 Before & After
    • 8. Flooding on Willow Road August 2007
    • 9. Residential Flooding August 2007
    • 10. Phase 4a Construction – Aug. 2007 Flood Storage Area
    • 11. Phase 4a Construction – Aug 2007 Flood Storage Area - Flooded
    • 12. Habitat Restoration• Village works closely with various biologists and DNR staff to restore habitat within the Pike River corridor.• Native prairie and wetland plantings are typical throughout the corridor with annual monitoring and invasive species control.• Reconstructed stream provides more natural habitat (meanders, fish habitat structures, etc.).• Annual monitoring of stream conditions (UWM) conducted to monitor impact of to-date construction and plan for future Phases.
    • 13. Prairie Restoration
    • 14. Pike River Pathway
    • 15. Recreational Corridor Development • Over 4 miles of multi- use, off-road bike trail constructed to-date throughout the corridor. • Trails are open to the public year-round. • River corridor provides wealth of additional passive and active recreation opportunities. • Unlimited access to the river.
    • 16. Water Quality/TSS Removal• Water quality ponds constructed throughout the corridor at points of in-flow of runoff.• Newly constructed flood channel banks with gentle (4:1) slopes and upland vegetated buffers.• New development and re-development must meet NR 151 requirements.
    • 17. Phase 4 Water Quality Ponds
    • 18. Typical New Channel Section
    • 19. Phases 8 & 9
    • 20. Prescribed Burn
    • 21. Pike RiverFish Monitoring

    • 23. 2011 and Beyond• Phases 6-9 are scheduled for completion within the next 5-6 years• Over $3 million in grant monies have been received to date for construction, land acquisition, etc.• Project costs to date are approximately $11 M with total projected cost about $18 M.• Currently 300 acres acquired, projected total corridor about 450 acres.
