A buried creek that was made accessible when the final hundred yards or so was unburied, creating an easily accessible outfall. It's a little over a mile of RCP and box conduit drain pipe that starts off at about 10 feet in diameter before eventually narrowing to 6 feet, ending in a grated infall just past Thom Field.

    Not much. The water is clean enough that some fish live in the drain. At least one of the smaller side lines might be an illegal sewer connection emptying into the creek.

    A small creek that was buried when this section of the riverfront was used for industrial activities. The Wausau Riverfront Project was a push to redevelop this area from an industrial wasteland into a community green space and unburying part of the creek was part of that project. The final hundred yards or so of the creek were unburied and the outfall constructed in 2016.

     Future Plans
    The portion of the creek that is buried will likely remain so for the foreseeable future.
