Gunstock Brook Stream Study Now Available!

A stream geomorphic assessment of Gunstock Brook was conducted by Bear Creek Environmental, LLC (BCE) in August 2011, with funding provided by the Samuel P. Pardoe Foundation and the Belknap County Conservation District. A planning strategy based on fluvial geomorphic science was chosen because it provides a holistic, watershed-scale approach to identifying the stressors on river ecosystem health. The stream geomorphic assessment data can be used by resource managers, community watershed groups, municipalities and others to identify how changes to land use alter the physical processes and habitat of rivers. The stream geomorphic assessment data will be used to help focus stream restoration activities within the watershed and assist with town planning. You can find the study and its appendices under the Resources tab.
