HARRY & LAURA NOHR CHAPTER OF TROUT UNLIMITE: Big Spring Branch Restoration Project

Purpose

The Big Spring Branch cold water stream habitat restoration project presents opportunities for a diverse and dynamic protection and management program. Specific objectives include: 1) the recreation of overhead cover in the stream with structures that scour holes and add sinuosity to the stream; 2) installation of integrated stream bank stabilitation, shaping back steep banks, and 3) utilizing habitat techniques for non-game species, reptiles, amphibians, and plant communities. Please note: Final report deliverables help us ensure that the grant has been satisfactorily completed, and that state dollars are being spent wisely. Every deliverable, no matter how minor, must be completed in order to receive full reimbursement for the state share of costs. Ranking questions used to obtain this award, and specific deliverables mentioned in your grant description, constitute final report deliverables. If any deliverable is not adequately provided in the final report, only partial reimbursement, at the department's discretion, will be made. The only exception will be if there is a well-justified and department-approved scope amendment. If you have any question about what a specific ranking question or other deliverable means, please contact your river coordinator BEFORE you sign this agreement. Special condition: The Sponsor agrees to abide by the "Conditions of Approval" contained in the Chapter 30 Regulated Activities approval issued by the Department on April 4, 2007.
