The Thompson Creek Watershed Restoration has the following goals:

           Reducing erosion of the creek channel.

  • Improve in-stream and riparian habitat by:
           Improving water quality.
           Re-meandering the channel.
           Stabilizing stream banks.
           Constructing pools and riffles.
           Reconstructing a floodplain bench.

  • Reduce flooding and damage to infrastructure and public and private property by:
           Improving stormwater management throughout the watershed.
           Reconstructing the creek and floodplain.

  • Create public support for the project and its goals by:
           Increasing awareness of individual property contributions to non-point source pollution
           Increasing understanding of linkages between non-point source pollution, water quality, and stream health.
           Implementing cooperative projects to demonstrate cost-effective means of improving stream health.

  • Implementation of this stream restoration project will create a highly-visible community asset that will improve quality of life for La Vista residents and serve as a replicable model for other urban streams in the region.
