Urban Stream Restoration Case Study: Davis Creek
Abstract:This project demonstrates that a properly planned and executed sediment removal and stream restoration project can provide dramatic improvement of aquatic habitat and biological diversity, whereas a poorly planned and executed project can result in large fish kills and undesirable environmental impacts. The project shows the importance of communication and coordination among stakeholders, especially when time is of the essence in making a project successful. In addition, the project documents the conditions observed in the creek over a 25-year period, from an early post-fish-kill survey to a later post-restoration survey.
