Miller Creek diversion a success!!!

We did a work party in August 2004. (Search here for details)

I did a recon during Rubithon last week and found Miller Creek flowing nicely iin it's original banks. I'll let some pics speak for themselves.

Before scouting spring 2004 at the blocked creekbed.

The mud hole will need some rock this year. But the log wall is holding fine.

Instead of rock, do you think their is any options on getting that to drain? Cut a french drain or something, I would just hate to see the hard work to be covered in water.

The drainage from the East goes through this area. Separate from Miller Creek and to the South. At that point, it is at the same level or lower than the sandy creek at the exit of the new go around. Cutting it any lower would be more work than filling with some rock. All we have to do is stabilize the edges and reinforce the bottom. If it gets covered in water and the progression of the mud stops, we did it right.

Thinking back... It's amazing how much A+ work went into the Rubicon and surrounding areas last year.
