The Capoli Slough Islands project includes constructing eleven islands, a riffle (rock lined) channel, and emergent wetlands. The islands will be built using material dredged from the main channel and from within the Capoli Slough area backwaters. To prevent the new islands from eroding, rock will be placed along sections of shoreline and vegetation will be planted. The islands will help protect and enhance existing islands and aquatic vegetation in the Capoli Slough area, and the backwater dredging will create deeper holes for fisheries overwintering habitat. The riffle channel will create habitat for riverine fish and mussels. When complete, this project will provide homes, food, and resting places for river wildlife such as migratory waterfowl, shorebirds, turtles, frogs, fish, mussels, beaver, mink, and otter.
