The Esopus (Ashokan) Basin Project Summary provides information on the primary full channel stream restoration, riparian buffer restoration, stormwater and infrastructure, streambank stabilization, post-flood response and floodplain restoration projects that have been completed since 1999 as part of the Esopus (Ashokan) Basin Stream Management Program. Stream projects were constructed to meet multiple objectives including: water quality enhancement, infrastructure protection, improved flood conveyance and sediment transport, improved fish habitat, improved riparian functions and to demonstrate natural channel design. These projects constitute only one component of the NYC Department of Environmental Protection and Ulster County Soil and Water Conservation District and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County’s stream management program.
