    Lots of projects planned for the Musky, Lopatcong Creek and others out west this spring. East Jersey is waiting on Oakland to line up all its funding to restore a 2 1/2 mile stretch of the Ramapo, but that requires a large track machine, not volunteer labor. They may be planting some willow cuttings in spring at a former dam site that East helped remove last summer in Cresskill.

    Quoted from the July 2014 issue of Riffles, (as of 7/6/14 - not posted on the EJTU website yet).
    ..... In July or August we will schedule a day to make some adjustments to
    the work we did last year on the weir on the Ramapo. Nothing big but
    it will be easier with many hands. Please watch for an email announc-
    ing the date that will be dictated by water levels.

    Was just thinking about this as I plan to help again. But this year I'll just be pointing at what needs to be done

    Excerpt from an e-mail I just got from EJTU.
    I altered Rich's email address for the bots.
    Replace (at) with @ if you respond.
    Conservation Project- 9/20/14
    On Saturday, September 20th we will meet at 9:30AM at the Glen Gray Road bridge to fine tune the work we did last year. Please be prepared to work in the water. You will need gloves and pry bars. One or two wheelbarrows would also be helpful. There is not a lot of work to do so we should be done before Noon if we have enough help. Please contact me if you can attend at remqcp(at)optonline.net

    Re: Ramapo River rock rolling project Saturday (Aug. 10th)

    Wish I could help, but I have two TU events that day myself that will prevent my being there. Our chapter's pig roast (Ridge & Valley TU) on the Musky and later in the day the NJ Highlands Festival on the banks of the Musky where I'm presenting on fishing restored waters. Shameless in my plugs, aren't I?

    At 9:30 Am on Saturday, September 20 th, we will be meeting at the Ramapo River at the Glen Gray Bridge to make some adjustments in the weir removal work that was done last year. The work will include reinforcing the cross vane on the east bank and the relocation of some larger stones. We should be done in a few hours if we get enough volunteers. If you have been to the Ramapo this year, you should have observed the improved flow mid-river. Water is no longer being forced towards the banks. Our work has yielded the desired result.

    Pete, I just shot Rich an email letting him know I am available if he still needs volunteers. Will you be attending?

    I'm not sure..
    I threw my back out, while fixing my furnace last week, and it's not getting better.
    Lifting rocks may not be a good idea.
    I did not send Rich an email because I don't want him counting on another helper.

    Given what happened last year, sending him your email, was a good idea.
    At least four people didn't get the word, when he had to postpone last year, due to high flows.

    BTW: Last year they partnered with a local environmental group.
    In case anyone is undecided..... no promises...but...
    There were "college girls in wet T-shirts".

    I can personally vouch for that!

    It sure was nicer than staring at a bunch of smelly old men!!!

    Sorry, no "wet T-Shirts" this time....
    There was a decent turnout from EJTU, including the chief of the Oakland Emergency Management (RoyB).
    No other "Partner Groups" participated.

    As I understand it the largest remnant of the weir was causing undesirable eddy currents during high water.
    The objective was to reduce it, and widen the openings.

    Rocks to big to handle in a wheel barrel were rigged and dragged to the side.

    Roy's mini tractor came in handy for that.

    Smaller rocks were brought upstream, and used to enlarge and expand the deflector on the east side of the river.

    My back was still out, so I didn't do anything more strenuous than watch.
    I told Rich to consider me a reporter...
    I left around 10 AM.

    Sorry about the picture quality. Right now my best camera is a cheap cell phone.
