Stream Work in Chichester Begins

Posted on: August 5th, 2013 by Leslie_Zucker

A stream project has begun to repair three sites on the Stony Clove Creek between the Sil­ver Hol­low Rd. bridge and Route 214 bridge in Chich­ester.  These projects con­tin­ue repairs to the Stony Clove in Chich­ester start­ed in 2012. The con­nect­ed projects are designed to sta­bi­lize heav­i­ly erod­ed areas through a com­bi­na­tion of in-stream struc­tures and stream­bank sta­bi­liza­tion. This year’s project will address one of the larg­er sources of chron­ic tur­bid­i­ty in the Stony Clove Creek and the Ashokan Watershed.
