Project in 2007 – 2009 selectively removed smaller woody debris that had fallen into the stream bed after DNR crews had cut stream-side alders. Much of the debris that was removed came from alders that had died after tipping into the stream. This debris had trapped and impounded a huge amount of sand over the years. By 2011, the stream channel had flushed through much of the accumulated stream bed sand.
Maintenance work in 2011 removed additional debris that had been uncovered due to the sand flushing occurring since 2009.
