Upper White River Habitat Restoration, VT

Upper White River Habitat Restoration, VT

This project will address flood and flood recovery related habitat modifications on four tributaries to the Upper White River in Rochester, Vermont by utilizing active in-stream management and design; establishing riparian buffers; and removing barriers to fish passage in order to restore brook trout habitat and the natural hydrologic regime. When complete, the project will result in the protection and enhancement of 2.75 miles of in-stream habitat and over 30 acres of floodplain and riparian habitat on the West Branch as well as 8.1 miles of in-stream habitat in Howe, Marsh, and Nason Brooks.

Restoration of Natural Hydrology and Habitat Complexity in the Machias, Rivers, Maine

Restoration of Natural Hydrology and Habitat Complexity in the Machias, Rivers, Maine

This project will remove 11 remnant log drive dams and add large woody material to restore fish passage, stream connectivity and natural stream processes that will passively restore cold water habitat in the tributaries of the Machias River. A total of 27.2 miles of stream upstream of the dam sites will be affected by the project.

Dirt & Gravel Road, Streambank Stabilization Project on Cross Fork, Pennsylvania

Dirt & Gravel Road, Streambank Stabilization Project on Cross Fork, Pennsylvania

The Cross Fork subwatershed, part of the Kettle Creek drainage, is considered one of the best of the best brook trout habitat areas in Pennsylvania. The subwatershed, almost entirely contained within the Susquehannock State Forest and thus protected in perpetuity, is widely renowned as a brook trout destination fishery. The watershed is home to a network of dirt and gravel roads where improper road profiles, inadequate draining, and multiple stream crossings have accelerated erosion and transport of sediment to the streams. This project will select and implement high priority projects that focus on dirt and gravel road improvements, streambank stabilization, riparian buffer restoration, and brook trout habitat expansion.

St. Mary's Liming, St. Mary's River, Virginia

St. Mary's Liming, St. Mary's River, Virginia

The streams of the Saint Mary's Wilderness, located on the slopes of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains, have been severely compromised by anthropogenic atmospheric acid deposition. This project will add limestone sand using to the headwater streams of St. Mary's River to enhance over 12 miles of stream for brook trout.

In-Stream Habitat Restoration in the Meduxnekeag Watershed, Maine

In-Stream Habitat Restoration in the Meduxnekeag Watershed, Maine

This project will restore 1.9 miles of habitat on the Meduxnekeag River mainstem and 0.25 miles of habitat on its north branch for brook trout within trust land for the Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians. The project will return the river to a more natural, sustainable state of in-stream habitat complexity, increase brook trout habitat quality, and promote interest in future restoration activities.
