EPR was honored to be a partner alongside Resource Institute and construction contractor, North State Environmental, in this important project to reduce erosion, restore buffers, improve aquatic habitat and biological health of the river, and restore floodplain connectivity along the Fisher River. The project restored and enhanced approximately 2,651 linear feet (LF) of river and associated riparian buffer along the Fisher River within Fisher River Park in Surry County, NC. Another 772 (LF) of stream was restored along an unnamed tributary to the Fisher River. The river is now a focal point for park users again, and aquatic and terrestrial habitat have greatly improved.
