Stream Projects Advancing

Posted on: August 14th, 2014 by Leslie_Zucker

A stream restoration project at the confluence of Stony Clove Creek and Warner Creek is about 60% complete and advancing quickly toward its finish this year. Contractor Baker Brothers Excavating will install the final two grade control structures at the downstream end of the project site. Water will be diverted around this section of the stream next week. Then the stream bed will be restored to a natural state, including large boulders one expects to see on this stretch of Stony Clove Creek. On the Warner Creek section of the project, finishing touches will be a stacked rock wall and revegetation of the right bank. The Town of Shandaken expects the project to be completed by September 30 or shortly after.  A second stream restoration project will begin later this year on the Stony Clove Creek at Stony Clove Lane. Contractor bids will be received on Monday and the bid announcement will be posted this week.

Contractors install metal sheet piling to provide grade control in the Stony Clove Creek near Silver Hollow Road. Sheet piling is the only material strong enough to stop the stream bed from eroding downward in this steep section of the stream.
