We’re missing out on collecting gravel

Start collecting gravel

 

It’s the time of year that as I travel, with the low water levels in the river and streams, I see the “beds” with their gravel filling the reservoir.

I recall the time when that gravel was reclaimed for construction bases during this low-water season that has passed, Now that it’s Spring, these beds will be filling up.

With a little rain, it seems it will need not to be extended rainfall, we hear warning of minor flooding (excluding the results of ice jams). The water reservoirs are filled with good construction gravel that the running streams deposit each annual cycle.

We have stopped cleaning the beds of a valuable source of this grade of gravel.
