File Troff document Harvey’s Lake Dam Removal, South Peacham Brook, Barnet, Vermont
Removal of the Harvey's Lake dam improves natural flow regimes, free-flowing river conditions, water quality and temperature, sediment release and transport, and connectivity to 27 miles within the Stevens River watershed. Floodplain restoration and large wood installations provides additional habitat in South Peacham Brook. The project cost is $861,750 and the estimated socioeconomic benefit is $14.7 million.

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.

Umpire Brook Culvert Replacement, Vermont
Umpire Brook is a small second order stream in the town of Victory, Vermont. It sustains a wild brook trout population and its watershed is almost entirely forested, with nearly the entire watershed falling within the Victory State Forest. Other than the limited runoff from forest roads, the only significant human-induced impact on this brook is a culvert on Umpire Brook Road. The goal of this project is to replace the current culvert with a bridge that will allow for upstream passage of fish and require less maintenance.

Lake Champlain, Vermont
Sedimentation, increased water temperature, barriers to passage and lack of riparian vegetation have been identified as the major threats to Vermont's brook trout population. The project includes has two principle efforts underway: installation of livestock fencing, alternative water systems, and planting native trees and shrubs to restore degraded riparian areas and the replacement of an existing failed culvert with a bridge to allow for the year round upstream movement of brook trout on Stevensville Brook.

File Friends of Winooski River completion report 2022
Friends of the Winooski River completed the removal of Camp Wihakowi Dam in Northfield, Vermont in October 2020. The circa 1920 dam was causing flooding upstream and sediment pollution downstream. Complete removal of the dam resulted in impressive gains: it reconnected 6 miles of Bull Run and an additional 21 miles of upstream habitat, allowed the stream to once again access the larger floodplain, and protected downstream habitat from the smothering effects of sedimentation. But of course, a dam removal project doesn't stop when the stone and concrete has been removed. To improve recovery and stabilization, project partners performed additional work on the pedestrian bridge, access road, and former pool area in 2021. Monitoring shows the river is free flowing, sediment transport has been naturalized, the restored floodplains are successfully vegetating, and habitat has been improved. According to EBTJV's calculations, the project brought an estimated $14.6M in socioeconomic benefits.
