Martin Creek Project

Martin_Creek_OutletThis project addresses the deteriorated riprap spillway located on Martin Creek’s confluence with Lake Wawasee in Kosciusko County, Indiana. Heavy storm flows within Martin Creek had washed large amounts of the riprap spillway into the lake. A large plunge pool had also formed at the base of the structure. The primary goal of the project was to reengineer and construct the spillway in manner that would withstand future stormflows. This was accomplished through the installation of gabion baskets. In addition, a new sediment trap was incorporated into the design to capture sediment being delivered to Lake Wawasee from Martin Creek.
