Strawberry Creek Restoration Program

The Strawberry Creek Restoration Program began in 1987 with the adoption of the Strawberry Creek Management Plan. The goals of the program at that time were prioritized as follows:

  • identify harmful releases from the Campus

  • eliminate these harmful releases

  • re-introduce native fish species to the creek

After a lot of work repairing sanitary sewer and storm lines to eliminate harmful releases, the Office of Environment, Health, and Safety successfully re-introduced three native fish species to the creek in 1988. The offspring of these initial populations still live in Strawberry Creek today.
