Members of several agencies collaborated
on the Steele Brook streambank
stabilization project.
tering the stream is beneficial not
only to the public's water supply,
but also to aquatic habitats. Clay
sediment can reduce oxygen in the
water, suffocating aquatic wildlife.
To further protect aquatic habitats,
a mixture of deep and shallow water
depths was created in the stream to
support different types of fish and
invertebrate life. Deep water, or
pools, have slow moving water and
are favorite places for certain species
of fish, such as trout, to hang out.
Shallow water, or riffles, are faster
moving sections of a stream where
rocks
break
the water's
surface,
which allows oxygen to enter the
water. These are good places for
certain insects to live.
" Now the park is more accessible
and more beautiful than it ever
was before. I was excited to bring
my boys - ages 13 and 15 - back
to the same park where my parents
had brought me. When we
[visited], they were amazed that
they had never seen this hidden
gem that is right up the road, " says
Krzyston.
According to the mayor of Delhi,
picnic tables and grills will be placed
in Reservoir Park to encourage not
only locals to enjoy the area, but
also visitors from New York City.
Besides the work recently completed
on Steele Brook, the brook
still has additional areas of erosion
that will be worked on in the future.
Patterson says, " There will be
more projects in the future on several
steep eroding banks. The work
that was done recently served two
goals - it stabilized the streambank
to protect water quality and it
improved an access road for future
projects downstream. "
