EPA Section 319 funded Carpenter Creek Stream Restoration and Flood Reduction Design/Build Project broke ground on Monday Oct. 12, 2015. A Design/Build team of HR Green, Inc. and Applied Ecological Services, Inc. was chosen by Carpentersville, IL for this unique multi-use federally funded Project.
HR Green and Inter-fluve examined hydrology, hydraulics, geomorphology and existing infrastructure at what is now Minnehaha Creek Preserve in St. Louis Park, MN. The team developed concept designs for restoring a sinuous stream channel, improving wetland and floodplain function, improving site recreation, trail connectivity and integrating stormwater management Best Management Practices.
On Saturday, October 11 volunteers from HR Green, Inter-fluve and AES planted several trees and bushes at the Trout Brook Nature Sanctuary in St. Paul, MN. Trout Brook is very near and dear to our hearts because it is a project that HR Green has been working on for the past two years and is now reaching the final stages.
HR Green designed the Trout Brook Nature Sanctuary and Regional Trail in St Paul. The preserve was developed in a 41-acre brownfield. During Major League Baseball’s All-Star game, played in Minnesota, a video was played highlighting this project
Winter crews working with the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District and their project partners will carry out HR Green’s restoration concept designs for the Twin City suburban areas of St. Louis Park and Hopkins, MN. The project design includes a new pedestrian bridge as well as over a mile of new trail and boardwalk with associated viewing areas, overlooks and trailheads.
