Mullet Creek Channel B Erosion Control
Project ID# 003894A
Mullet Creek Channel B, east of McMullen Booth Rd. and south of Cypress Trace Dr., Safety Harbor.
The purpose of this erosion control project is to stabilize the creek banks that were damaged by Hurricane Hermine. The creek bottom and banks will be hardened with gabions and concrete cloth to stabilize the soil, which will reduce the risk of future erosion. A wildflower and grass seed mix will be dispersed under the concrete cloth and gabions to promote vegetative grow in the voids. The proposed design will provide a grassed maintenance access area along the north side of the creek. The project will also provide additional floodplain storage in a natural planted area downstream. This natural area will increase the ecological value of the community by improving water quality and restoring wildlife habitat.
The project is in the design and permitting phase and a public information meeting was held on October 21, 2019.
Mullet Creek is a major drainage channel that conveys stormwater runoff from portions of the City of Clearwater, the City of Safety Harbor, and unincorporated Pinellas County into Old Tampa Bay.
This project schedule has been adjusted to align with the County's proposed 2021 fiscal year budget.
