Dilts River Corridor

Name of Project:  Dilts River Corridor Easement

Location:  Forest Dale 

River:  Neshobe River

Type of Project:  River Corridor Easement

Public Access:  no

Date Completed:  December, 2012

Size:  6.0 acres

Water Frontage:  900 ft

Landowner:   John and Anne Dilts; Easement held by Vermont River Conservancy

Funding Partners:  VT Agency of Natural Resources Ecosystem Restoration Grant Program

Property Description:   The parcel is located on the northern bank of the Neshobe River and is surrounded by mostly forest land.

Project Background:  This project was dramatically impacted by Tropical Storm Irene in August 2011.  During this storm, the Neshobe River flooded the wooded floodplain forests located on this property.  This area functioned properly as a floodplain forest by collecting organic debris, sediment and slowing down flood waters, lessening floodwater impacts to downstream Brandon.  This parcel could have been cleared or developed in the future, but with the help of thoughtful landowners VRC is ensuring the river will be allowed to move freely and the essential functions of the floodplain forest are protected.
