The Loyalsock Creek Watershed Association will hold a public meeting at 7 p.m. April 22 at the fire hall in Barbours.
Corey Richmond, watershed specialist with the Sullivan County Conservation District, will present a program with some interesting visuals. A company called Little River Research and Design has developed physical models of meandering streams, then subjected the models to various “flood prevention improvements,” such as channel straightening, dredging and head cuts. The models are referred to as “fluvial morphology in a box.”
The program includes videos of the stream before, during and after the intervention, often with unanticipated results. The meeting also will provide updates on various LCWA projects.
This will be an interesting presentation on flooding and please consider going out to learn about this and to support this organization.
