Whitney Streambank Restoration & Dam Removal

In 2017, the City of St. Cloud completed a streambank restoration project to restore a badly eroding area along the Sauk River. The project included removing a dam that was contributing to the issue.

In 2021, two sections of the bank were re-stabilized to improve vegetation growth and prevent further erosion
