    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 bear camera is a cheap cell phone.
    I didn't even know you were there! Didn't see your name on the sign in sheet...

    That's me in green in the bottom picture...watching everyone else work.

    Sorry I didn't get a chance to introduce myself but the work seemed to be effective

    I believe I was the last one to sign in, and the first to leave. I was the old phart on the bank, who took some pictures with a cell phone, and then left.

    I can't explain why, but I suspected that might be you. I planned to ask if you were wearing a green shirt, but there were three people in green shirts.

    BTW, I have two pictures that were too blurry to post, where you are actually working.

    Really odd habit of referring to yourself in the third person...

    Just say "thank you"...

    You mean you doubted my plan?

    I'm looking forward to my next trip up that way to see how it came out. I was quadruple booked for Saturday, so the Ramapo had to fall on the back burner. But I was there in spirit!

    As for IDing Pete, just look for the old Red Ball waders!

    Excerpt from an EJTU e-mail:
    Thanks to all the members who turned out to put the finishing touches on the weir removal on September 20th. Many hands made the work go quickly. Thanks, Roy, for the ATV. He was able to drag some of the bigger boulders out of midstream with the team of guys who were harnessing the rocks. We reinforced the vane on the East bank which should reduce the flow of water along that bank. Some of the washed out areas have already filled with sand. The flow midstream was good even though the water level was very low.

    More follow up work had been scheduled for today, but it's being delayed due to high water flows. Depending on how quickly the water drops, it will be either tomorrow, or next Saturday.

    Excerpt from EJTU e-mail dated 08/18/2017:
    Cross Vane Project Postponed

    River levels are up so we will postpone the work on the Ramapo until Sunday morning August 20th at 9:00AM.
    We will meet at Glen Gray bridge parking area.

    PLEASE CHECK THE WEB SITE BEFORE YOU LEAVE HOME ON SUNDAY.

    If water levels do not drop enough, we will reschedule for Saturday August 26th.

    Note: This is unrelated to the infamous Oakland Project. This work site is on the Mahwah side of the Bridge and a bit upstream.

    I was all set to help lead on Saturday, but was busy with family obligations yesterday and couldn't make it. Hope it went well. Maybe East Jersey TU can do the whole thing since the Borough of Oakland's hired Brand X guy can't seem to get a permit to move forward.
