Thompson Spring Creek Restoration and Fisheries Enhancement


in coordination with private landowners

The Problem

Years of erosion, overgrazing, and high summer temperatures significantly affected the Thompson Creek Stream and fishery near Belgrade, MT. The combination of these factors led to large fine sediment deposits covering the stream bed, destroying deep pool and spawning habitats.

Our Solution

Confluence coordinated with private landowners to:
  • Provide project consultation, surveying, permitting, design, and construction oversight
During construction we:
  • Reduced channel widths
  • Installed bioengineered bank stabilization treatments
  • Improved aesthetics and wildlife habitat features
  • Increased deep pool, rearing, and spawning habitat for trout
  • Stabilized seasonal water temperatures
  • Expanded floodplain and wetland habitat
  • Restored and revegetated adjacent wetlands with native sod and seed
