Vermont's rivers hurt by flood repair, some say

Sep 23, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: BurlingtonFreePress.com

A seldom-seen sight has become legal and commonplace in parts of Vermont after Tropical Storm Irene: Excavators and bulldozers sitting in the middle of rivers to quarry gravel, rechannel the current and pile protective rock along eroded banks.

The damage to some of the streams and river is cumulative including the huge rain storm from 3 years ago that destroyed the bridge near the CVP power station on Lake Dunmore Rd. I think we have to make sure the dozing and such is suffient to perserve the course of the streams and prevent erosion from future large events that could again close down roads and bridges.
