Stream Daylighting

The stream flowing through the New Paltz Peace Park has recently been brought back out into the light. Daylighting is a process of bringing back to the surface a waterway that had been previously redirected into underground culverts. Daylighting creates new riparian environments and also has aesthetic benefits.

The new stream adds itself to the landscape.

It's much more than something nice to look at!
