The September General Meeting of the Brodhead Chapter of Trout Unlimited will feature Lori Kerrigan, is currently the Head Resource Conservationist, and supervisor of the permitting/technical section at Monroe County Conservation District who will present on the project to restore the streambank on Sand Spring Run.
Lori has facilitated the development of a partnership with the PA Game Commission and DEP. Through this partnership, MCCD obtained a two-part Growing Greener Grant, to improve water quality, restore the natural stream functions, minimize bank erosion and restore habitat in a headwater reach of Sand Spring Run in the Upper Pocono watershed. The project came about to address an historic stone box culvert failure, below the 75-foot-high impoundment that supported the Wilkes Barre and Eastern (WB&E) Railroad crossing.
When completed, the Sand Spring Run Streambank Restoration Project will provide a significant reduction in sediment loading, to the Pocono and Brodhead Creek Watersheds, restored riparian buffer and enhancement of both instream and riparian habitat.
The event is free, and you can let us know you are coming and register online.
