Streambank erosion remains a concern in Hawk Creek, which flows 65 miles from its start at Eagle Lake in Kandiyohi County to its confluence with the Minnesota River near the Upper Sioux Agency State Park. Large quantities of water at high velocity erode the banks during rain events and snowmelt periods.
