Warner Creek Project Nearing Finish

Posted on: July 31st, 2013 by Leslie_Zucker

A project to restore water qual­i­ty and stream sta­bil­i­ty on Warn­er Creek (a trib­u­tary to Stony Clove Creek) is well under­way and should be fin­ished by ear­ly August. The project, locat­ed just down­stream of the Warn­er Creek Sil­ver Hol­low Rd. bridge, aims to sta­bi­lize an erod­ing hill slope that is rich in fine sed­i­ments, and pre­vent fur­ther slump­ing of Sil­ver Hol­low Rd.  Stream man­age­ment tech­niques include in-stream struc­tures to direct water away from the stream­bank and slope-grad­ing. The Town of Shan­dak­en spon­sored project should offer a long-term solu­tion to insta­bil­i­ty in this sec­tion of Warn­er Creek.
