The project will provide 15,456 stream mitigation units (SMUs) on Candy Creek and nine of its tributaries in the Haw River Basin.The project will create significant ecological improvement through exclusion of cattle from the stream, restoration of aquatic and terrestrial habitats, and the removal of two farm ponds. The project will also decrease nutrient and sediment loads from the watershed by eliminating widespread, severe bank erosion, connecting the onsite streams to their floodplains, and restoring native riparian buffers. The project includes categorical exclusion documentation, existing conditions assessment, landowner coordination, conservation easement acquisition, stream restoration design, permitting, construction, and seven years of post-construction monitoring.
