Restoring Habitat Connectivity in Machias and Saint Croix River Tributary Streams, Maine
This project will restore habitat connectivity on three brook trout habitat streams and eliminate ongoing risks of sedimentation during culvert failure, in watersheds identified as brook trout habitat priorities. Removal of four fish passage barriers will reopen 3 miles of passage for brook trout.

Thunder Brook Dam Removal, Chesire, Massachusetts
This project seeks to restore natural riverine functions and values to Thunder Brook, a tributary to the South Branch of the Hoosic River. In its current condition, an aging dam and failing culvert fragment this valuable coldwater stream and prevent fish passage between the Hoosic and the high quality headwaters of Thunder Brook on Mount Greylock. This project will remove 2 fish passage barriers and open 2.4 miles of stream for brook trout passage. The project will also re-establish the river's natural flow regime, improve sediment dynamics and water quality, and restore natural clean gravel and cobble necessary for brook trout and other species of interest.

Brook Trout Restoration in the Chattahoochee National Forest, Georgia
This project will restore fragmented poor quality habitat and brook trout populations on the Chattahoochee National Forest in Georgia by removing and replacing a culvert on Bryant Creek that is perched and acts as a barrier to fish movement. Additionally, nine miles of habitat will be improved by placing 54 structures in nine streams: Bryant Creek, Chester Creek, Lovinggood Creek, Long Creek, Underwood Creek, Walnut Fork, An unnamed tributary to Ammons Branch, Smith Branch, and Chastain Branch. Electrofishing will be used to renovate three streams: Stover Creek, Walnut Fork, and Tate Branch.

Restoring Stream Connectivity in the WB Machias River in Maine
Project SHARE and the Service completed a basin wide stream-road crossing and fisheries assessment in the WB Machias River. There are 43 fish bearing road crossings in this subbasin that limit aquatic connectivity. To date, 11 crossing have been replaced and 8 crossings have been decommissioned. Funding has been secured to remove all but two of the remaining barriers. This project will remove one of those last two barriers in the basin, reconnecting approximately 0.5 miles of habitat for brook trout and restore ecological stream function.
