File Octet Stream Removal of Two Dams in the Wetmore Run Watershed, Potter County, PA
As part of a plan to upgrade their public water supply to a non-dam alternative, the Borough of Galeton agreed to remove two dams and their associated impoundments. The dams were located on Wetmore Run and Right Branch of Wetmore Run, Potter County, PA. Both streams are classified as High Quality – Coldwater Fishery (HQ – CWF) by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP) and drain a predominantly forested watershed comprised of ~60% public land. The barriers blocked upstream Brook Trout passage to approximately 8.5 miles of headwater habitat, contributed to the elevation of instream temperatures, interrupted the natural flow regime, and negatively impacted ecosystem function. As a result of the dam removals, almost 8.5 miles of headwater habitat was reconnected to the rest of the upper Pine Creek Watershed, which contains several intact eastern Brook Trout populations.

File Octet Stream Dam Removals to Reconnect Brook Trout Habitat on an Unnamed Tributary to Frankstown Branch, Hollidaysburg PA
Kladder Dam was removed in September 2014 and the tributary through the former impoundment was restored to an appropriate gradient to match the watershed. Stream restoration materials included native soil and rock, clay from the dam’s core, sediment from behind the dam, and Large Wood Debris, all originating on the site. In addition, a riparian corridor was planted in the former impoundment, and several rock jack-dams and brick lining in about 100 feet of the stream channel above the former impoundment were removed by hand.

File D source code Mill Creek (Tygart River), WV: Large Woody Material Strategic “Chop and Drop”
Mostly dead and/or down hemlock trees were utilized to create large woody material inspired habitat structures to increase pool habit, increase thalweg meander length, decrease bankfull width, and introduce overhead fish cover. Cross-vanes, j-hooks, wing-deflectors, toe wood, digger logs, and engineered log jams were constructed. The strategic part of this chop and drop effort was to place and anchor logs to minimize movement in bankfull or high events.

File Octet Stream Monitoring Report - 2015 East Fork Greenbrier River/Poca Run Large Woody Material Project Monongahela National Forest, West Virginia
The East Fork Greenbrier River/Poca Run LWM project was designed to treat a total of 16 stream sites with LWM structures distributed along ¾ miles of stream and floodplain areas on the MNF. Eight aquatic habitat enhancement sites were planned for a ½ mile segment of the East Fork Greenbrier River, including one site in a high flow side channel.
