Mica Creek Watershed Agricultural Sediment Reduction and Improvement Project (Phase 2) 

Project Sponsor 

Kootenai Shoshone Soil and Water Conservation District 


The purpose of this project is to stabilize 1,600 feet of streambank on Mica Creek, a tributary to Coeur d’Alene Lake, by removing collapsed vegetation, armoring the banks, and replanting willows to prevent further erosion. These upgrades will help reduce sediment and phosphorus loads to Coeur d’Alene Lake. This project is expected to be completed by summer 2024. 


This project was awarded $49,000 from Governor Little’s Leading Idaho initiative.


This project is complete.


This project is estimated to reduce phosphorus loads to Coeur d’Alene Lake by 50 pounds annually.
