In 2015-2016, The Windham County Conservation District partnered with the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation and Fitzgerald Environmental Associates to complete a “Stream Geomorphic Assessment,” or River Corridor Plan, for the Williams River and many of its tributaries. All in all, just under 50 miles of stream and river bank were assessed. This assessment will help to guide future floodplain management and conservation projects along the River and streams flowing into it. Here is a link to the final report:
