Konkle Creek Phase 2

The reconstruction of Konkle Creek has been an important move for The Town of Lincoln. Necessary as the creek is an important Storm Water management tool that carries water to Lake Ontario and often at a high rate of speed. This has caused erosion to the banks ovee the last 25-30 years to the extent that certain areas of the creek became hazardous during times of high rain/spring thaw.

The reconstruction involves re-routing the creek and providing it more room to "meander" as creeks will naturally do

It also involves stabilizing the banks by planting, and then establishing root systems.

Along the creek will be a walking path which connects to the overall Trails system.

Then Open House gives you an opportunity to view the details of Phase 2, ask questions, and provide input.
