2018 Projects

This folder contains information on the five habitat projects funded in FY18. Collectively these projects will remove 2 fish passage barriers to reconnect 9.5 miles of habitat and enhance 21.7 miles of in-stream habitat for wild Brook Trout. These projects were funded by the EBTJV and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for $214,131. An additional $768,119 in partner contributions are expected. The estimated socioeconomic value of these projects is $16.9 million.

Darnit Brook Culvert Replacement, Nezinscot-Androscoggin River, Buckfield, ME

Darnit Brook Culvert Replacement, Nezinscot-Androscoggin River, Buckfield, ME

This project restores Brook Trout passage to 8 miles of headwater streams (perennial + intermittent) by replacing a failing culvert with an open bottom arch structure that is sized to pass a 100-year flood event. This project costs $210,189 and the estimated socioeconomic benefit is $4.3 million.

St. Croix River Tributary Culvert Replacement,West Musquash Tributary, Grand Lake Stream, Maine

St. Croix River Tributary Culvert Replacement,West Musquash Tributary, Grand Lake Stream, Maine

This project will improve access to a West Musquash Tributary (Otter Brook) for fish and other aquatic organisms and restore the ecological function of this stream. In addition, the project will address a chronic sedimentation problem that is detrimental to the health of the stream, the 4,200 acre Big Musquash wetlands complex, and the West Branch of the St. Croix River International Waterway. The project cost is $44,000 and the estimated socioeconomic benefit is $0.8 million.

Wilson Creek Watershed Improvement Project, Rugby, VA

Wilson Creek Watershed Improvement Project, Rugby, VA

This project will reduce chronic erosion and sedimentation coming from horse trails, protecting 15 stream miles downstream from the crossings. It will also protect headwater seeps from trampling erosion, and allow 300 acres of riparian vegetation to grow, further shading the stream and filtering field runoff. Riparian restoration will favor native red spruce, which in turn will provide a cool, moist micro-climate consistent with maintaining wild Brook Trout streams. The project cost is $120,000 and the estimated socioeconomic benefit is $8.2 million.
