Description/Comments: 

Restoration work along South River and Route 116. Root wads have been pounded into the bank on Route 116 side of the river. They are intended to deflect flows back towards the center of the stream, and to aid recruitment of sediments on this side of the stream, in locations where eddies occur because of the action of water flowing around these root wads.
