The Alger Park Stream Restoration Project combined public and private space LID in the upland areas with two different types of stream restorations in the stream valley to maximize the restoration opportunities the site presented to ensure environmental uplift. The RSC approach used on the upper reach helped fill gullies, up to 20ft in some areas, and dissipate flow. The downstream portion of the project created a braided stream-wetland complex of pools and riffles, planted with over 3,000 native wetland plants. The project stood out to the jurors for the scale of its impact, use of up-slope practices, and coordination with the local community.
