Edelweiss Farms Streambank Restoration
The work to stabilize 1,980 feet of streambank near the Village of Fillmore, NY started in February. The work is supported by a grant from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. The total project value is $283,688, including $33,400 of in-kind work to be performed by the landowner.
The picture to the right shows the extent of the erosion along the riverbank. The work to stabilize the bank is over 60% complete. We look forward to a tree planting event in May to establish a riparian buffer. This farmer has lost over 160 feet of his riverbank at the middle of the 1,800 foot bank since the project was funded in 2017.
