Chatham to Conduct Vegetation Survey for Effects of Muddy Creek Project

CHATHAM – On Thursday, October 25 and Friday 26, staff from Horsley Witten Group will be conducting vegetation surveys and photo monitoring along the banks of Muddy Creek to document changes in vegetation following the Muddy Creek Restoration Bridge Project.

These surveys are intended to document changes in salt marsh, and other near-shore vegetation resulting from the increased tidal flow for the first time in 100 years into Muddy Creek from Pleasant Bay. The increased tidal flow is a result of the removal of under-sized culverts and installation of a bridge span completed in 2016.

Results from the new survey will be compared to pre-construction surveys and will be available in early 2019.
