Seymour River Corridor Plan

A stream geomorphic assessment within the Seymour River watershed was conducted by Bear Creek Environmental, LLC (BCE) under the direction of Lamoille County Planning Commission (LCPC) and the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources (VANR) during the summer of 2017. Funding for the project was provided through the State of Vermont Ecosystem Restoration Program.  A planning strategy based on fluvial geomorphic science (see glossary at end of report for associated definitions) 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.
