Turkeycock Creek at Brookside Office Park Stream Restoration (SD-000031-242)

Project Update: July 12, 2021

The final design has been submitted and is expected to be approved in summer 2021.

Project Background

This project was identified when management from an adjacent property expressed concerns to the county about a steep and unstable streambank from erosive stream conditions. In November 2019, staff from the Stormwater Planning Division initiated the design of the project.

Project Description

Downstream and south of the Little River Turnpike Service Road, Turkeycock Creek is continuing to erode the eastern streambank adjacent to the Brookside Office Park Complex. This project will address the unvegetated, nearly vertical bank with the installation of a soldier pile and lagging retaining wall to prevent further erosion. The project also includes approximately 300 linear feet of stream restoration.


The project design is expected to be completed in summer 2021 and construction is anticipated to begin in spring 2022.

What to Expect

Contractors and staff may be at the project site on foot and wearing high-visibility clothing. This section will be updated once the project is closer to construction.

Project Cost and Funding Source

Stormwater projects are funded through the county Stormwater Service District.
