D'Olive Watershed Model for Restoration

DAPHNE – A decade after the heavily eroded D’Olive Creek area was “the Grand Canyon of Baldwin County,” the watershed is now being cited as an example of how stream restoration can control erosion and soil flowing into waterways.

Litter Gitter

Litter Gitter Collecting Trash on D'Olive Creek

DAPHNE – Don Bates pointed to a bucket of moldy plastic and Styrofoam sitting on the bridge over D’Olive Creek. The trash was collected during a test of a small-stream litter collection device in D’Olive Creek. “That was with no rain,” he said. “When it rains, these things will have a lot more than that.” The device, known as a “Litter Gitter,” is now deployed in the creek upstream from the Gator Alley boardwalk and will be used to intercept floating litter from storm water runoff. Bates, the owner of Osprey Initiative, which developed the Litter Gitter, said 10 of the devices are now in place in Three-Mile Creek and three in Dog River in Mobile County.
