Sunday River "Chop and Drop", ME_FY07 Project

This project evaluated the impacts of adding large woody material to streams in order to attenuate flows and determined that adding this material resulted in positive trends in reducing flashiness of flows, improving Brook Trout habitat, and trapping sediment. However, one of the lessons learned was that a longer monitoring period than the three-year life of this project is needed. Overall, the project determined that "chop and drop" can be a relatively inexpensive and simple method to attenuate variability in flows, create, improve and restore Brook Trout habitat, and trap sediment.
