Pemi River Project Becomes NH’s 6th EPA Success Story

February 27, 2013

A Trout Unlimited project to restore an impaired section of the Pemigewasset River at I-93/Exit 31 in Woodstock, NH that began with a Clean Water Act 319 grant in 2003, was recently approved by the Environmental Protection Agency as a 319 Nonpoint Source Success Story.

In what was the largest-scale river restoration project funded by DES, the Pemi River project stabilized a river channel that had been impacted by historic gravel excavation and an avulsion that impacted fish habitat.

Congratulations to Todd Baldwin of Thornton, NH, former president of the Pemigewasset Chapter of Trout Unlimited, who led the local restoration effort.  Also involved were Sean Sweeney of Headwaters Hydrology and Tyler Phillips (also of Thornton, NH) of Horizons Engineering, who provided fluvial geomorphic assessment, design, and construction engineering; Alvin J. Coleman & Sons, Inc., who constructed the project; and Steve Landry, the DES project manager.
