The Kalamazoo River Restoration was established as the remediation efforts for the oil spill on the Tallmadge Creek Tributary in 2010 in Ceresco, Michigan. Once the oil spill cleanup efforts were under control NSE began the 4.5-mile project just below the confluence of the Tallmadge Creek. Toe wood was the critical component installed in the outside of the bends to give location for aquatic habitat and collection of bio-mass to help revitalize the surrounding ecosystem.
