NEWFANE, Vt. (AP) - Work to restore a Vermont stream that was damaged during Tropical Storm Irene in 2011 is expected to begin soon.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports that the work on Adams Brook in Newfane will reopen access to about 16 miles of water that fish could no longer reach. The stream was forced partially underground when large boulders were brought in to stabilize the area amid flooding concerns.

Officials say the work will aim to recreate the natural appearance of the stream. They say the restoration should be good for fish and water quality.

The state will spend about $73,000 to fund the work.
