Project Description

The Springhouse Run restoration reestablished a self-sustaining stream through a combination of regenerative stream channel and legacy sediment removal techniques. Located on U.S. National Arboretum property, the project established in-stream structures and floodplain wetlands while replacing invasive species with native plants throughout the reach. The project also excelled due to its watershed-based restoration approach and public education components.
