Ten thousand trees planted. Six thousand feet of improved streambank. Nine hundred tons of sediment kept out of the water. These actions and results have improved the water quality, aesthetic and recreational value of the Illinois River and earned the Oklahoma Conservation Commission an Environmental Excellence award from Keep Oklahoma Beautiful. The award was presented Tuesday November 19, at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum as Keep Oklahoma Beautiful recognized local, state, and tribal governments, as well as nonprofit and community groups for their efforts to protect Oklahoma’s environment. The Commission was recognized for its 2012 project to restore over 6,000 feet of eroding streambanks along the river and its tributaries. The project used natural channel design and planted trees in the riparian areas of 11 sites in the Illinois River watershed. Streambanks along both public and private property were restored and over a year later all sites are performing as expected. The estimated amount of sediment kept out of streams and the river as a result of the project is estimated at 900 tons.
