dc.description.abstractThe Butler Creek Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration Project is the first of many Section 206 projects of its kind identified by Cobb County, Georgia for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), Mobile District to study and implement solutions (under the Continuing Authorities Program) in the Metro-Atlanta area. The Section 206 authority allows for the Corps to participate, at the request of a non-Federal sponsor, in aquatic ecosystem restoration, if the project will improve the environment and is in the public interest. Butler Creek and several other creeks in this geographic area have been proven to support the Cherokee Darter, a small fish that is federally-listed as “threatened” by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). The Cherokee Darter is being adversely impacted because the rapid growth in the Kennesaw/Acworth areas of Cobb County is resulting in problems in the basin such as flashy stream flows, streambank erosion, and heavy deposits of silt in stream beds.en_US
