As planning for next summer's work goes forward it is with great satisfaction that I can tell all the Batten Kill lovers out there of the continuing support that our work has received.
The Alliance has received a Vermont Ecosystem Restoration Grant to stabilize two eroding banks below along Mill Brook in Rupert. The approaches taken will include extensive planting of trees and bushes, log stabilization structures at the foot of the bank, and improving flood plain access.
Monday 9/16/13 at 7pm at the Albany Ramada Plaza. Off Exit #5 of Route 90 at 3 Watervliet Avenue Extension. Call the Albany Ramada Plaza (#866.539.8430) for more specific directions.
*** 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.
