Pepin FASST (Flood, Agriculture, Salmon, Safety, Transportation)
The City has been working to address a significant water quality and stormwater problem caused by erosive stream banks along Pepin (Double Ditch) creek and over-topping of ditches along Benson and Double Ditch Roads by realigning flows into a new Pepin Creek riparian corridor. Work has included upstream ditching and will include replacing the culvert under Main Street with a bridge over a box culvert. Additionally, downstream stabilization to alleviate bank erosion and failures downstream from Main Street to the confluence of Double Ditch and Fishtrap Creeks - approximately 0.75 miles - will also occur. Two properties have been acquired to protect and expand riparian habitat for Pepin and Fishtrap Creeks.
