Trail Fork Crossing Replacement


Trail Fork Crossing Replacement Del Rio, Tennessee (Cherokee National Forest) Existing culverts at the Trail Fork Crossing were perched and skewed with respect to the stream thalweg, which reduced AOP and created localized erosion and associated sedimentation affecting both the channel and adjacent floodplain. The culverts also created a break in the natural streambed, [...]

Meadow Creek Design-Build Stream & Wetland Repair


Meadow Creek Design-Build Stream and Wetland Repair Project The highly urbanized watershed of Meadow Creek produces high runoff, sediment supply, and discharge rates, which has led to channel destabilization and erosion within the 7,372 linear foot project stream reach. Originally restored in 2012 and 2013, this section of Meadow Creek continues to experience significant localized erosion. [...]

Blacks Run Restoration and Northend Greenway


Blacks Run Restoration & Northend Greenway Harrisonburg, Virginia Both the tributary and Blacks Run were experiencing lateral and vertical degradation as a response to livestock access/use and an increased volume and magnitude of stormwater runoff due to a rapidly developing watershed. A community lead greenway trail had been conceptually planned and would address a [...]

South Fork Shenandoah River Restoration

Meadow Creek – Cedar Court Stream Restoration


Meadow Creek- Cedar Court Stream Restoration Within the proposed restoration reach, Meadow Creek was displaying lateral instability in the form of eroding banks primarily due to the amount of impervious area within the watershed associated with the residential development upstream of the project area, and the lack of vegetation along the banks. The project was proposed to [...]

River Run Stream Restoration & Dam Removal


River Run Stream Restoration & Dam Removal An existing dry detention pond was failing and the stream reach was incised measuring approximately 8’ wide by 6’ deep throughout the reach.  The stream was eroding laterally along both left and right stream banks. Stream restoration work would help to address the pollutant reduction requirements for  [...]
