Rondout Watershed: Projects and Programs

Catskill Streams MapThe Rondout Basin Project Summary provides information on the primary full channel stream restoration, riparian buffer restoration, stormwater and infrastructure, streambank stabilization and floodplain restoration projects that have been completed since 1999 as part of the Rondout Stream Management Program. This partnership was greatly enhanced in 2009 with an increased level of commitment and partnership between the NYCDEP and Sullivan County SWCD.

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 Sullivan County Soil and Water Conservation District’s stream management program.
