The project is one of three finalists for the 2016 Minnesota Environmental Initiatives Award, Natural Resources category. 

The City of Duluth, with partners Barr Engineering and Minnesota Trout Unlimited, are being recognized for their work to restore Coffee Creek. 

The stream was damaged during the 2012 flood.  

The restoration project included 1,200 feet of new stream channel, including high-quality trout habit, and over an acre of restored native vegetative buffer. 

The winners will be announced on May 26 in Minneapolis.
