Paulinskill River WMA Hyperhumus Restoration


The Division of Fish and Wildlife is involved in two restoration projects at Paulinskill River WMA, located in Hampton and Andover Townships, Sussex County. Both projects fall within the HyperHumus section of the Paulinskill River WMA, formerly a peat and humus mining operation belonging to Scotts-Hyponex.

Ducks Unlimited is spearheading a project to repair breeches in berms and install three new water control structures, allowing for the management of water levels in two impoundments on the east side of the Paulinskill River. Construction for this project is expected to start in Fall of 2017.

Additionally, The Nature Conservancy is overseeing a larger restoration project that intends to dechannelize the Paulinskill River and restore a variety of natural habitats. This project is currently in the design phase, with preliminary soil, hydrology, and biological sampling beginning in Spring of 2017.
