Talk overview: The Onondaga Environmental Institute and the Town of DeWitt have collaborated on development of a Ley Creek restoration plan and began implementing a few projects to provide flood control, improve water quality and stream habitat. The restoration of stream habitat will be performed via the establishment of riparian wetlands and substrate enhancements, thereby improving spawning and nursery grounds for Onondaga Lake fisheries, in particular walleye and northern pike.
