Route 14 Stream and Floodplain Restoration

Stone is recently developed final restoration designs for an eroding drainage channel along Route 14 near Bessette Storage in Hardwick, Vermont. The site—one of the high-priority sites advanced to concept design in the town’s stormwater master plan—includes a first order unnamed tributary to Coopers Brook, serving as a drainage ditch that conveys both intermittent stream flow and runoff from roughly 111 acres of drainage, as well as heavy sediment loads within the Fluvial Erosion Hazard Area of the brook.
