Mitigation planned for North Empire Creek

-A A +A

Acidic waters hurt wildlife, fish

By Ian Neligh

North Empire Creek above the town of Empire will get much-needed mitigation to remove mine waste and help restore the waterway.

The Clear Creek Watershed Foundation will spend $536,000 to remove the waste and re-vegetate the area between April and August. David Holm, the foundation’s executive director, hopes the mitigation will begin to make the water less acidic, eventually allowing plants to grow along the creek’s banks and fish to live in its waters.
