Hamant Brook Culvert Replacement, Old Sturbridge Village, Massachusetts
The two leading causes of brook trout habitat degradation in Massachusetts have been identified through the EBTJV as fragmentation by dams and roads. The subwatershed containing Hamant Brook was identified as high impact from dam fragmentation and medium impact from road fragmentation. This project will remove three dams and one impassable culvert, allowing access from mainstem habitat to a coldwater tributary and converting 70% of the project area from impounded to free-flowing. Once complete, the project will open nearly 8 miles of habitat and provide access to more diverse free flowing and coldwater habitats for brook trout and riverine fish species.

Hathaway Brook Dam Removal and Stream Restoration in MA
The primary goal of this project is to restore natural stream conditions and stream connectivity within Hathaway Brook, thereby enhancing habitat value for existing aquatic species. One barrier will be removed, restoring access to 3,000 feet of stream. The project will reestablish continuous flow and natural sediment transport regimes, and restore geomorphic processes within the channel.

Restoration of North Branch of the Hoosic River, Removal of the Briggsville, Massachusetts
This project will remove the Briggsville Dam in Clarksburg, Massachusetts to restore and reconnect approximately 30 miles of habitat in the North Branch Hoosic River. Removal of the dam will eliminate a barrier to the movement of aquatic and riparian species, re-establish the river's natural flow regime, improve water quality, improve the temperature regime for coldwater species, and restore natural clean gravel and cobble necessary for brook trout.
