Wissahickon Creek Stream Restoration and Enhancement

Cedarbrook Country Club, in cooperation with Whitpain Township and Wissahickon Creek Watershed Association, is leading the charge to restore the Wissahickon Creek through their property.  A Master Plan was developed for Cedarbrook Country Club using GIS and LiDAR topography to map improvements for various areas of the riparian corridor, including two irrigation ponds and one tributary to the Creek. The Master Plan was broken up into multiple stages in order to minimize the stream impact at any single time and per Grant Limitations.  Phase I and II of the project received grant funding through DCED Flood Mitigation Program in 2016, $297K and 2021, $250K for design, permitting, and construction of three areas of work. Phase III will focus on the restoration of a section of the Willow Run Creek that crosses the Club grounds. The project represents many challenges since the work is taking place on the golf course during prime season for play. Through coordination with the Superintendent of Grounds, the Contractor was able to complete Phase I of the project without impact to the membership, receiving compliments from members for their performance on the project.
