Project Description

This proposed project would stabilize streambanks, reduce erosion, improve water quality, and improve stream habitat along Bassett Creek between Regent Avenue and Golden Valley Road in Golden Valley. Currently, the BCWMC is evaluating this 7,000 foot section by surveying streambank conditions and identifying areas where banks need to be stabilized and where stream habitat can be improved. The BCWMC is working with the City of Golden Valley to gather input from residents along the creek during the study. Watch the announcements section of this page for information on upcoming public input events.
