Deer Brook Gully Restoration, Georgia, Vermont

The Deer Brook watershed includes approximately 8.4 square miles in the towns of Georgia and Fairfax. Deer Brook flows into Arrowhead Mountain Lake, and ultimately into Lake Champlain and is considered to be impaired by sediment, from its mouth 2.5 miles upstream. Since the construction of I-89 and related U.S. Route 7 improvements in the 1970s, and subsequent addition of homes and businesses near the intersection with Route 104A, contributed to this impairment, as storm flows discharge at the head of a gully first assessed and documented by ESPC and Stone in a 2007 report to the Northwest Regional Planning Commission (NRPC).
