    He appeared to be trying to express optimism, but didn't seem too sure of himself.
    I just checked very closely and confirmed no permit application is in to NJDEP yet. My guess is if they sent anything, they requested that the DEP tell them which permit(s) they need for this type of project. That answer will be a GP-16, but it allows the Oakland contractor to keep the ball rolling without violation of bid contract because of all the time that has elapsed since they were awarded the bid. And it will confirm to them that there is no other way to do in-stream restoration for fish habitat enhancement.

    Re: Ramapo River Restoration Project Moves Along

    Anyone have any news on this project or know if it was formerly declared dead and buried in the town archives? By bid requirements, it should have been completed by last summer. Just curious if any of you lives in Oakland and can ask what happened to this restoration. From what I know of this project which is a lot, it's better to not to do any project rather than to let the winning bidder who doesn't seem nearly qualified try and fail.

    I know the town removed the flood commissioner from his appointed (non payed) office over it and he was one of only 2 that truly understood what needed to be done and how best to get qualified bidders only to bid in the first place. He became a thorn in the side for the town council and they showed him the door, but he is a very good man and was correct all along. He originally drove this project for the borough and later had to come out against it once the bidding process went the way that it did.
