USACE Seeks Comments on Sand Hill River Project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, is seeking public comments on a proposed habitat improvement project on the Sand Hill River near Beltrami, Minnesota.

The Sand Hill Watershed District requested permission from St. Paul District to modify the existing flood control project on the Sand Hill River.

They’re requesting to install 16 rock riffle structures in the channelized portion of the river. These rock structures will reduce channel degradation and bank erosion, while improving habitat.

They would be placed near existing concrete drop structures and associated fish passage features. The requested modification is being designed to work in combination with the Corps’ fish passage project, scheduled for completion in 2017.

A public review and comment period on the draft environmental assessment begins February 12 and ends March 16.
