Reedy STREAMBANK WORK COMPLETED 

Two months ahead of schedule the City completed Reedy River stream stabilization project in five separate locations. 

"We were very glad to complete these streambank stabilization projects ahead of schedule and get in front of the spring growing season," City Engineer Paul Dow said. "Healthy root systems are key to stable streambanks, so we need everyone’s help in this final stage. Please stay off the matting!"
