Culvert Replacement and Instream Habitat Restoration on Indian Stream, New Hampshire
In 2006, an initial watershed based assessment of coldwater habitat conditions was completed by Trout Unlimited in the Upper Connecticut in New Hampshire and Vermont. In 2008, Trout Unlimited designated the Upper Connecticut as one if its Home Rivers Initiatives, the only one in New England. Trout Unlimited's assessment identified fish habitat problems through the watershed, including lack of riparian habitat, poor instream habitat diversity and complexity, and inadequate stream crossings. This project will initiate the first phase of a long term culvert removal and instream habitat program by replacing four high priority culverts and implementing instream woody habitat restorations in Indian Stream, starting on the East Branch. The culverts to be replaced are on four important brook trout nursery streams: Dry Creek, Johns Brook, Hidden Brook, and Alder Brook. The project will restore 3 miles of habitat on east branch, the largest tributary to Indian Stream.

File D source code Culvert Replacement and Stream Restoration in Wolfden Run, Garrett County, Maryland
This project enhances 3 miles of in-stream habitat and restores upstream fish passage to 2.76 miles of Brook Trout habitat, reducing habitat fragmentation in the Upper Potomac River watershed. The project cost is $176,550 and the estimated socioeconomic benefit is $1.5 million.

For municipalities. Learn more about our Culvert Replacement Municipal Assistance Grant Program. There are approximately 25,000 culverts and small bridges in Massachusetts - the majority of which are undersized. Culverts that are too small can be barriers to fish and wildlife movement and cause flood hazards for communities. Massachusetts regulations call for culverts to meet the Stream Crossing Standards to help protect our natural resources and our communities. Find out here how the Division of Ecological Restoration (DER) can help your community with culvert replacements that meet these Standards and learn more about our Culvert Replacement Municipal Assistance Grant Program.

EBTJV's 2021 habitat projects to connect over 6 stream miles, reduce sedimentation, improve brook trout resiliency to climate change
The US Fish and Wildlife Service has awarded $173,333 in funding for EBTJV partners through the National Fish Habitat Partnership Program in 2021. These projects bring an additional $669,887 in partner contributions for a partner:NFHAP ratio of 3.9:1.

Enhancing Connectivity in the Ash-Black Rock Subbasin of the WB Narraguagus River, Maine
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.

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.
