USA: Indian Creek Restoration Wrapped Up

Indian Creek Restoration Wrapped Up

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, and the Philadelphia Water Department partnered to complete a transformative restoration of the West Branch of Indian Creek as part of the Cobbs Creek Habitat Restoration project.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony and tour will be held on Friday, April 25 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Charles Papa Playground, at 6839 Lansdowne Avenue in Philadelphia.

The restoration work, consisting of 750 feet of newly constructed and 1,300 feet of reconfigured stream channel, will allow the West Bank of Indian Creek to flow naturally for the first time since 1928.
