Rerouting the Maury River to stop erosion and restore natural river life

WFIR-LOGO-1One of the largest stream restoration projects ever in Virginia is under way right now on the Maury River in Rockbridge County. They’re building a new river channel to re-route the Maury near Glasgow — about 2/5 of a mile.  As WFIR’s Evan Jones reports, the goal is to stop riverbank erosion which deposits sediment on the river bottom and disrupts its natural ecosystem.
