Quivett Creek, on the border of Dennis and Brewster, MA, is in a salt marsh that has been divided in two by a culvert and a small access road. Salt water flow was restricted by the road and the malfunctioning culvert. Restoration work will include enlarging the culvert and improving restricted water flow.

An overview of the marsh and the culvert that restricts water from flowing from Quivett Creek into the marsh. The preferred restoration choice was to create an open channel between the two sections of marsh but the homes in the foreground would have been impacted. Instead the culverts were enlarged. Part of the project includes raising the abandoned roadway surface to provide flood control

The septic systems of the homes on the edge of Quivett Creek marsh might have been threatened by the creation of an open channel between the two marsh segments so restoration focused instead on enlarging culverts and removing sections of an access road that restricted water flow into the marsh.
