Enhancing Connectivity in the Ash-Black Rock Subbasin of the WB Narraguagus River, Maine
|Project Start Date|
This project will replace two poorly functioning culverts with open bottom arch culverts to allow unhindered fish passage and restore overall ecological stream connectivity. Once complete, the project will open 4.3 miles of habitat from Ash Bog Stream to Black Rock Brook which flows to the West Branch of the Narraguagus River.
