Re: New Culvert Design to Benefit Maine Brook Trout Habitat
Two years ago in central Vermont, the rains from Hurricane Irene caused major destruction to roads along mountain streams, much like what recently happened in Colorado.
One major cause of these road washouts was inadequate culverts that became clogged with debris
Driving through that part of Vermont this past summer you were constantly slowed by roadwork as all these old culverts were being replaced by the new concrete arch design
Stream Simulation can prevent culvert washouts - and makes fish happy!
