Kepner Creek Streambank Restoration

On Saturday, July 18th, the Stony Creek Anglers held their annual Adopt-A Stream Project near the High Arch Bridge over Kepner Creek. Under the supervision of the PA Fish & Boat Commission, we created a shot rock & log bank extension/fish habitat.

Besides tossing literally tons of rock down the hill, I assisted in digging the trench for the left support, and it was amazing some of the stuff that was coming out of the ground. Not only old chunks of stone & asphalt, but bricks, ceramic, and iron too, as this particular bank was a site for demolished building materials from previous structures on the Norristown State grounds.

It was an fun (but tiring) project.
Some pictures are below, I think I'm resting in most of them...
