Streambank Restoration Project
With a limited budget and the help of over 20 people, we were able to complete the streambank restoration project on the North Branch of Mehoopany Creek. Hurricane Ivan from 2004 greatly damaged the flow of the creek which had been repaired. But persistant heavy storms have since eroded the banks, threatening the bridge, culvert and also the landowner's property. Food and drink was provided for all who helped. The project, which was properly permitted and engineered by the PA Fish Commission, will improve trout habitat and prevent erosion. A big THANKS to all who participated.

Now this leaves me with an area on either side of the stream bank, already dug up and planted with rye grass. What would you plant in these areas come spring. The one side is about 10 feet above the creek bed at normal levels, the other is only a couple of feet. The lower side has alot of rocks also. Poor soil but not sure putting lime down to improve things will work, a little rain and this area could be under water. If your intrested in what it looks like go to http://www.briskeymountain.com/ and click on the stream restoration project link. Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks for checking this out!
