Stream Geomorphic Assessment in Springfield

The Town of Springfield has partnered with the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources to conduct a Stream Geomorphic Assessment (SGA) of an unnamed tributary to the Black River that flows along Valley Street in Springfield.  The lower segment of this tributary is contributing significant amounts of sediment and nutrients to the Black River. This assessment will identify and outline recommended projects to reduce sediment and nutrient inputs, as well as mitigate infrastructure conflicts and enhance habitat. Stream Geomorphic Assessments broadly allow us to understand the physical processes occurring in our rivers and streams. Bear Creek Environmental, LLC will be conducting the assessment work on behalf of the Town during June 2017. A final report is expected to be finalized in October, 2017.
