Two large stream restoration projects are set to begin in Silver Hollow near Chichester, NY carried out by the Ashokan Watershed Stream Management Program (AWSMP). The projects aim to restore segments of Warner Creek to a stable and more functional condition. The sites became particularly unstable following floods in 2010 and 2011. The projects will re-create pool and riffle features and stabilize the channel bed and providing fish and aquatic insects with habitat they need.
The Ashokan Watershed Stream Management Program is a collaboration between the Ulster County Soil and Water Conservation District, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County, and the NYC Department of Environmental Protection. More information is available at ashokanstreams.org.
