Southeastern Montgomery County Chapter 468 News Report for August, 2001

Subject: Re: TU Chapter's work day Sat. 8/18/01

Here is an short report from Mike Wilson, the Adopt-A-Stream Project leader, on this year's second workday on AUGUST 18, 2001.

"Date: Mon, 20 Aug 2001 08:03:51 -0400
From: Mike_Wilson/
Subject: Stream Improvement - Lorimer Park

"... Saturday August 18 th was our second work day on our Adopt - A - Stream project. Thirteen chapter members worked from 8:00 AM till Noon to complete the second deflector. Four support logs and a sill log were placed in the deflector and pinned into place. Stone was then added to stabilize the deflector.

We have two more deflectors to be added in this section of the stream. A single log structure upstream and another log and stone deflector downstream. Hopefully we can install the single log device and start the base for the stone / log deflector next month. I expect we will complete this section in October. The remaining four deflectors will be upstream, and should be completed next year.

At some point we'll have to think about expanding our work area on the Pennypack. I'm not sure how the limited access will affect our ability to move upstream. I've learned that having the materials close to the work area is critical. At some point I'll take a look downstream to see what that section looks like."

Below is a collection of photos showing our second shecduled workday on our stream improvement project on the Pennypack Creek in Lorimer Park in Montgomery County.

The photos were taken by Dave Storm.
