Project Overview

This project will improve surface water quality within the sediment degraded Trout Brook, a designated trout stream and tributary to the Cannon River. The project will focus on the installation of best management practices that will reduce the amount of sediment transport within the watershed. Approximately 20 practices will be installed through this project which will reduce an estimated 2,000 tons of sediment per year. Installation of the highest impact and most cost effective practices will result in a quantifiable reduction of sediment that reaches Trout Brook and will directly address the turbidity impairment identified within Trout Brook and the Cannon River.
