    are you looking at kayaking from annseville circle? note that there is also a rental place at the croton train station to kayak on the croton river. also one at croton point park but not sure thats operating on weekdays. anywhere along the peekskill waterfront would be a great vantage point for storms. radar looks like something coming through now and then clearing thereafter.

    There’s no way to do this surreptitiously. It’s right by a significant roadway intersection.

    Not exactly a planned subdivision. The old dam downstream on my property is from the 1700s. The big dam further downstream that made the lake was built in the 1800’s to supply water to the croton train station for the steam locomotives.

    I’d have to agree, although this particular area is completely within my neighbors property. They own the land on both sides of the stream, as do I just downstream from there. This area didn’t just fill in with silt, there were some major flooding events that did the majority of the filling in, especially Floyd (I think that was the one). Tons of rock and gravel were deposited in there from the gravel road which runs by the stream. I’d think the carting away and disposal of the mud would be the most significant part of the cost. You can see the erstwhile swimming hole in this google map image circled in black. When the stream floods, all the gravel from the road circled in blue gets carried into the pond.

    Interesting. My neighbor upstream had a swimming hole that was allowed to fill in with silt such that it is now mostly marsh and swamp. I've always wondered what it would cost to dredge something like that. I would think it would take an excavator a couple few days to dig plus whatever to haul and dump the mud. Is that 10k, 100k, 500k? the big dam on the pond/lake abutting my property was recently rebuilt with concrete and that thing isnt going anywhere. great fishing in there if anyones interested. can't swim in it because of snapping turtles.

    The Brooke that runs through my property is at normal level for this time of year.
