As River Steward for Connecticut River Conservancy, I can’t stop thinking about rivers. Since the 2011 Tropical Storm Irene, as an organization we have been racing to get projects done to protect communities before the next big flood. Projects like berm removals that allow our rivers to access floodplains so they can slow down and dissipate the energy of flood waters, projects like the removal of deadbeat dams – all of which are no longer in use and have been blocking our rivers for years - that will lower the flood stage when they are out of the way, projects like planting trees along rivers to help slow the energy of floodwaters and provide a healthy forested buffer for flood waters to infiltrate.
The successful implementation of two riparian buffer plantings in Reading and Windham, in Southern Vermont.
Opportunity to address the backlog of water infrastructure improvements to benefit water quality and upgrade drinking water and wastewater infrastructure in VT.
