Project Description

This stream and wetland restoration project restored a 1,500-foot reach while also providing greatly improved aquatic and upland habitat function. The project involved the re-connection of the stream to its floodplain as well as the planting of thousands of native plants throughout the site with the help of student and community volunteers. The comprehensive design created multiple wetland and stream habitat zones while treating stormwater runoff from a 34.5 acre area with 70% impervious cover.
