REPAIRING PROBLEM CULVERTS – STARKS

1 – 3 PM, Saturday, Oct. 6bad culvert

 

Meet at:

240 Sawyers Mills Rd., Starks , ME  04911  Get Directions

Presented by the Somerset County SWCD and Maine Woodland Owners Upper Kennebec Valley chapter. A persistent stream crossing problem has been fixed after more than half a century; come learn how.

Management projects are sometimes poorly done, with long-term negative impacts on nearby properties, public and private.  This site visit will spotlight a stream relocation done by a landowner about 1960 that damaged fish passage and a town road.  A DEP grant to the Town of Starks corrected the problem.

This event is free and open to the public. FMI: Joe Dembeck, joseph.dembeck@me.nacdnet.net/474-8323, or Patty Cormier, patty.cormier2@maine.gov/592-2238.
