ACD STAFF AND CONDUCTING STREAM MONITORING AT SLAPNECK CREEK ON KOLPACK ROAD- MAY 2022
The water quality rating was "FAIR" based on the MiCorps stream macroinvertebrate datasheet, which was an improvement after the culvert replacement in 2021. The old culvert was replaced with precast concrete box culvert in 2021. These culverts have higher strength and load capacity, longer durability, and lower installation costs than the traditional corrugated metal culverts you may be used to seeing. Replacing these culverts will help reduce the sediment washing into the streams and increase passage for fish and other aquatic organisms.
