The proposed action is to chemically rehabilitate Cottonwood Creek with multiple treatments using EPA registered piscicides (rotenone: Prenfish™ and antimycin: Fintrol™ or CFT LegumineTM). Treated water will be detoxified with potassium permanganate (KMnO4). The goal of the treatment is to eradicate remaining (since treatment in 2003) nonnative brook above the constructed fish barrier. Then, over the next several years, the stream would be restocked with genetically pure, native westslope cutthroat trout from an existing population in the Missouri River that has been shown to be at high risk of extinction.
