These UAV images from July 18-25, 2021 illustrate many of the issues with road-stream crossings, culvert size, debris, climate change driven intense precipitation and related flooding, and beaver activity in the Northeast. Also shown are river processes in action, a stable channel through a floodplain forest, glacial geologic features (an esker, and glacial till), and beaver-constructed wetlands. This tour from above shows evidence of where floodwaters went.
