Field Work

Overview

Part of developing a watershed management plan for the Still River is getting out into the field to identify steps we can take to reduce pollution, improve recreation opportunities, and reduce flood risk.  

HVA is in the process of assessing approximately 40 miles of streams in the Still River Watershed.

Status Updates

Still River assessments are more than halfway completed! HVA has assessed over 30 miles of waterways in the Still River Watershed to date. We are assessing the river for 8 different impacts, which include: 

  • Channel modifications

  • Severe bank erosion

  • Impacted buffers

  • Stormwater outfalls

  • Trash/debris

  • Utility impacts

  • Road-stream crossings

  • Miscellaneous items, including river access points

 

These data will be used to help the Still River Watershed Partners identify potential restoration projects that will help reduce water pollution, improve recreational access, and/or better manage stormwater runoff and flooding across the watershed.
