The Unofficial
I-26 Construction
Madison County
North Carolina

One of the channel relocations on the A-10C project. This one is for Jarvis Creek, down near the southern end of the project. The center of the relocation is a low flow channel, which will contain the stream in a meandering flow during normal flow conditions. When heavy rains cause the stream to rise, then the higher channel will contain the runoff without damaging the surrounding area. Large boulders and rootwads will be used to help the stream construct habitat for fish and other stream dwellers once the channel has water redirected into it.
