A reach of Soldier Creek that is undergoing rehabilitation. 

The turbidity of the water is typical for Soldier Creek

due to the highly erosive soils in much of the drainage basin.

 

Thistle Creek, the other main tributary of the Spanish

Fork River.  This reach was rehabilitated in 1998.

Changes included creating meanders, adding root wads

and other in-stream structures, cutting down high banks,

and replanting willows.
