*** The NY Batten Kill project in Shushan was postponed due to high water. We hope to re-schedule since the water has certainly come down now.
*** The VT Roaring Branch project now has finalized plans for a total of 5 rock cross vanes at two sites along Kelly Stand Road. We are awaiting permits and waiting to be sure that we can fit our project around the large road and bridge rebuilding upstream that is to repair Irene damage.
*** In the meantime, a Vermont Youth Conservation Corps Crew came to our area for two weeks and did terrific work on Irene clean up and restoration. They removed over a ton and a half of trash and material from Roaring Branch in Sunderland -- this was the remains of the houses washed away and other debris, not trees. They planted grass on some of the rocky road embankments there and they planted trees along Mill Brook in Rupert. They also worked on flood channel access and stabilization in White Creek in Rupert and in the Batten Kill in Arlington.
