Right-sizing Stream Crossings for Fish, Wildlife, and Resiliency
Streams are often disrupted by undersized and improperly placed culverts, resulting in habitat fragmentation and increases in erosion, flooding and flood-related damage. Culverts and bridges can be designed to minimize impacts to stream habitats and aquatic connectivity. DEC recently adopted protocols to evaluate road-stream crossings for “passability” and to prioritize crossings with the greatest need of replacement and repair. DEC is also working on funding solutions to help municipalities right-size their culverts and bridges for improved connectivity and resiliency.
