Description    


A livestock bridge was installed on Whiskey Creek to allow cattle to move from one side of the creek to the other without walking through the riparian area and creek channel. The 10 foot wide X 30 foot long bridge was installed. The purpose of the project is to prevent the riparian area and stream channel from erosion, sedimentation, and nutrient loading to Whiskey Creek. A riparian exclusion fence was completed using US Fish and Wildlife Partners for Fish and Wildlife funds. The fence is connected to the cattle crossing bridge.

Project Benefit    


Installation of an off-stream watering facility and riparian cattle exclusion fencing on Whiskey Creek, and to reduce streambank erosion and sediment and nutrient loading to the stream by placing a cattle crossing bridge to keep the cattle out of Whiskey Creek.
