The Turkey Creek Sediment Trap project is located at the mouth of the Creek as it flows into Gordy Lake in Noble County, Indiana. Gordy Lake is one of several lakes in a chain of lakes on Turkey Creek, the main waterway feeding Lake Wawasee. The purpose of this project was to reconstruct a previously existing sediment trap that had filled in with sediment from the Turkey Creek watershed. The purpose of the sediment trap is to reduce the delivery of sediment and associated nutrients to Gordy Lake and downstream.
