Kinni River Corridor Project

The Kinni is not contaminated at present, so the risk of recontamination is quite limited. However, any significant public works project such as dam removal or stream restoration includes ongoing maintenance ensure the long-term performance of the improvements. If, for example, the reservoirs were dredged and all the sediment was removed, the removal effort would need to be repeated periodically to maintain the deepened reservoir condition. Without maintenance, and upstream runoff controls, the dredging project would need to be repeated.
