Stream Work

The stream has been eroding its banks since we moved here and today Alan had a chance to work on diverting the stream. Here are two examples of the worst of the erosion.

It was amazing how quickly Alan was able to begin to change the course of the stream.
In the photo below the new stream course is to the left and the old to the right.
We thought the stream originally followed the course to the left and after a few hours of water movement the stream found the old stream bed and the water was running clear again.
Now very little water is flowing through the old sections of stream and the new (old) course looks great. Now I just have to wait to see if any of my yellow flag irises were disturbed.
