Project Title & Description
Mill River Ecosystem Restoration
Per your application request dated May 23, 2007, this grant agreement is being awarded to provide funds for the proposed project that involves implementing a range of alternatives to improve the water quality and restore the Mill River section of the Rippowam River watershed. Some examples of the restoration efforts may involve improving and augmenting existing flows in the river; implementing a number stormwater management related improvements such as bioretention basins, permeable pavers, and litter control; and the possible removal of retaining walls and replacing them with natural vegetative stabilization, and ensuring environmental conditions are restored to a level necessary to enable the return of anadromous fish and other species, as well as waterfowl.
