UPDATE on the restoration of Kilpatrick Pond at Silver Creek

The first phase of the Kilpatrick/Purdy Pond Stream Enhancement Restoration Project will begin this week with dredging at the Purdy Pond. The Nature Conservancy, RR Ranch and Golden Enviro ask that the public respect the “Hard Hat” restrictions in the area and do not enter the construction area. Any questions you may have can be directed to the Nature Conservancy (208) 720-5465 or RR Ranch.

The dredging portion of the project is scheduled to last about 3 to 4 weeks with the construction of a new dam and wetland areas to follow. Strict guidelines and permit requirements will require the contractors, RR Ranch and Nature Conservancy to monitor the area on a regular basis. Phase two of the project is scheduled to begin next year. We will have updates as they are made available.
