A $220,000 restoration project of the upper San Luis Obispo Creek is nearing completion.
“This is the culmination of two years of work,” said Brian Stark, deputy director of the county’s Land Conservancy.
The project in Reservoir Canyon is intended to restore steelhead habitat and reduce the risk of flooding downstream.
Floods and runoff had caused damage to the banks and bed of creek.
As part of the project, workers stabilized 650 feet of stream bank and created 10 deep pools where young steelhead take refuge during the summer.
