Watershed Planning Meeting


A virtual joint meeting for the West Fork Kickapoo and Coon Creek Watersheds occurred on January 27, 2022, with associated cooperating agencies. 


The purpose for the virtual meeting was to discuss what dam decommissioning would entail and to determine agency and stakeholder concurrence on a path forward. Agencies, stakeholders, and Tribes received an invitation to attend, ask questions, and come to a consensus regarding the course of action. Primary alternatives discussed included:


(1) Remove part of a dam to create a “notch” able to withstand the pressure of 100-year storms.

(2) Completely remove dams and restore the natural floodplain.


The ultimate consensus determined by attendees is to pursue the “notched” dam alternative as the preferred alternative.
