Cowskin Creek getting a makeover

Cowskin Creek getting a makeover

By Penny Kiryk. CREATED Dec 1, 2013

Cowskin Creek - which flows through Haysville - is getting a good cleaning starting Monday.

The Haysville Public Works Department and Sedgwick County Public Works Department have teamed up to cut down selected trees, trim overgrown bushes and remove other debris in and around the creek.

The public works offices said it will maintain the flow of the waterway and reduce the risk of flooding. It will also improve the appearance of the area. 

The project has been on the go for awhile. People who live around the creek have been notified, easements have been granted and permits have been approved.
