Natural Channel Design, Construction and Monitoring
Abstract:The Cedar Grove Business Park, located in Bullitt County just south of Louisville, Kentucky, is a developing commercial subdivision supporting the growing E-Commerce and airport related industry. This development is in the process of converting farmland into commercial warehouse sites. Two reaches of Buffalo Run, a relatively undisturbed stream (see Figure 1), were relocated to make way for the new infrastructure of this business park in the beginning of 2001. Prior to construction, the Kentucky Division of Water worked with the developer to initiate a stream restoration and preservation plan for these and other reaches of Buffalo Run. The following discusses natural channel design methodology, construction techniques and monitoring activities implemented to satisfy the 401 Water Quality Certification permit for this project.
