2019 Projects

This folder contains information on the three habitat projects funded in FY19. Collectively these projects will remove 2 fish passage barriers to reconnect 29.8 miles of habitat and enhance 3 miles of in-stream habitat for wild Brook Trout. These projects were funded by the EBTJV and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for $108,550. An additional $1,085,487 in partner contributions are expected. The estimated socioeconomic value of these projects is $17.8 million.

Restoration of Riverine Process and Habitat Suitability In the Upper Narraguagus River and Northern Stream Focus Areas (Maine)

Restoration of Riverine Process and Habitat Suitability In the Upper Narraguagus River and Northern Stream Focus Areas (Maine)

This project decreases embeddedness by mobilizing the river bed, increasing sediment sorting; increases the number and depth of pools; increases retention of allochthonous organic material that the aquatic food web relies on; reduces the dead waters and over-widened channels in legacy reservoirs; and, increases cold-water fish population resiliency to climate change. The project cost is $155,737 and the estimated socioeconomic benefit is $1.6 million.
