Clear Creek Stream Mitigation Bank
The City of Coralville seeks to work with the US Army Corps of Engineers to create a stream mitigation bank on city-owned property along Clear Creek. The goal of the bank is to restore 6,565 linear feet of Clear Creek in two separate reaches and to restore 2,238 linear feet of Becky’s Creek to generate an initial estimate of 97,781 stream credits.  

The project would use many different in-stream methods to aid in creek restoration, including: 

  • Floodplain connectivity
  • Floodplain benches
  • Re-meandering the stream to restore natural sinuosity to the channel
  • Constructing rock riffles and restoring two oxbows
  • Improving riparian buffer and controlling invasive species
