Slowing the Flow of Water

  • Location: Cambridge: Brewster Uplands
  • Year completed: 2023
  • Project areas: Water Quality Project
  • Partners/sponsors: Vermont Land Trust

A seepage swamp in Cambridge was being drained with culverts. Crews removed these and replaced them with gravel fords to slow the flow of water.

Please enjoy this terrific video our partners at Vermont Land Trust put together to showcase the project!

Find It:

Off of Route 108 in Cambridge, just before Jeffersonville. Parking lot on West Farm Road. The project site is along West Farm Trail. The trailhead begins with a staircase directly across from the parking lot – which was built by a VYCC Conservation Crew in the fall of 2023!
