This project consisted of the reconstruction of the stream liner for Bear Gulch at NYS route 7 in Richmondville. Although we were contracted with the Village of Richmondville, the funding came through FEMA and SEMA. These damages are a direct result of the damage caused by hurricane Irene and tropical storm Lee. The 100 year old stone walls that remained were removed and replaced with reinforced concrete walls. The channel bottom was also replaced. On the north side of NYS Route 7, the two existing buildings that used the stone channel liner as their foundation were jacked up and shored to allow the removal of the remaining stone walls. New reinforced concrete walls along with new wood floor joists were installed before the building was set and leveled. All work was done thanks in part to the installation of a temporary dam and 36” welded ABS pipe to divert the stream.
