Beechgrove« Go Back
The Beechgrove project was constructed in 2008 and is over 4,000 ft, lying in Breathitt County, KY near the Middle Fork of the Kentucky River. This project is quite the exception due to its 1% grade that is unlike most first and second order streams in Eastern KY that are in excess of 2% slope. The impacts that occurred to this stream were related to farming and logging activities. The direct impacts to the stream were excessive lengths of channelization and large amounts silt. The combination of these two types of impacts directly affects the amount of food and habitat made available to macroinvertebrates and fishes.
