Weber Stream Restoration Initiative

The Weber Stream Restoration Initiative is in collaboration with   many local agencies. Together they will:  1) Assess the condition of the Lester-Amity watershed,  2) Initiate community education and communication,  3) Design and implement stream restoration projects,  4) Assess the condition of other North Shore streams by developing    partners in the area,  5) Improve stream and watershed monitoring and modeling techniques,  6) Evaluate the demonstration project based on the condition of the   Lester-Amity waterways, and   7) Improve development planning and zoning with new data and tools   made available to regional agencies along the entire North Shore.    This program does not receive grant awards directly. There are   currently 8 projects associated with the Weber Initiative, each   designed to improve or protect Lake Superior tributary streams.   Projects range from GIS mapping, bank stabilization, to   incorporating stream-friendly planning and zoning ordinances. Weber   Initiative activities have been funded through various sources, with   awards in access of $7  K.    (Duluth); (Minnesota); (Lake Superior)
