Managing Bankfull, Sinuosity, and Shopping Carts in Urban Stream restoration Projects
Abstract:Stream restoration philosophies are most often focused on restoring natural stream functions and re-stabilizing eroding banks. While these elements are critical to a successful restoration project, and should be the primary focus, projects often fall short of educating the people that are most impacted by a restoration effort. Even after a successful restoration project, the community doesn't always see the stream as a natural environment. A successful restoration project should not only restore the natural functions of the stream, but it should also provide the groundwork for controlling illegal dumping and further deterioration of the streams riparian area.
