Whats the diff if they do, at least they are doing something.. it should'nt matter if its public or private as long as t.u. does what it is intended to do.

I don't believe that TU is "intended to" improve private property, is it? I can see doing work on property that is private if it benefits the water or habitat in areas open to the public. But as I understand the present discussion, you are saying that very little of the creek is open to the general public, so it does seem to make a "diff" in this situation, no? On the other hand, if the Chapter accomplishes stream improvements without public grants or money raised from the general public, then I can't see how anyone can complain about them feathering their own nest in this manner.

Good question. Shame on them if they did the work on a closed section. And even worse, if it was open and is now closed.


I can think of several TU projects that have taken place on private property.

They all were to improve water quality on a trib that was adversely impacting a larger stream that was open to the public. By taking on these projects the chapter improves fishing opportunities for the public, albeit not on the actual project area. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the Susquehanna River Basin Commission funds water quality improvement projects in cases like these because of their downstream benefits.

I totally agree pad.
If the project helps the waterways then be it.cooks is on private land and yes there are people who do not let you fish. the big arguement here in my case is just dont tell people to go fish cooks...If some one wants to fish it it then by all means knock on doors..the proplem is there has been to many knocks in the last 2 years, and landowners are getting tired of the publicity. I know of a lot of tu projects that have gone on private land also...Lets see whats the name of that stream liletz is it...
