Nonewaug River Shore and Bank Protection Project

Nonewaug RiverThe Nonewaug River project is located on the Nonewaug River in the North Woodbury section of Woodbury.

The project consists of a 210-foot-long gabion retaining wall along the left riverbank, with stone slope protection along its base. The retaining wall adds stability to the Middle Road Turnpike, which had been threatened by erosion. It is a small project designed to prevent streambank erosion, and was built under Section 14 of the Corps’ Continuing Authorities Program.

Construction began in November 1983 and was finished in August 1984. The project cost $164,000.
