The Importance of Plant Community Structure on Form and Function of Created Wetland Systems
If we consider that the creation and the restoration of a wetland system begins with the design of the hydrology, then establishing the form and function of a wetland begins with the design...

Watershed Characteristics and Hydrological Parameters vs. Sediment Yield—Northern Regions of Pakistan
In order to manage, restore, or effectively maintain a watershed it is necessary to know what is really going on inside that watershed, which includes the effects of watershed and hydrological...

Aspects of River House Cleaning during Floods
In spite of all the destructive forces of floods, the washing and scouring of polluted bottom deposits during spring floods gives the rivers a new start at the beginning of what is usually...

European Progress on river Renaturalisation
Most restoration projects in Europe have been designed to maximise species richness with little regard for channel stability. To recreate a sustainable natural channel it is necessary...

Ecological and Biological Considerations in River Restoration
When planning river restoration projects, proper consideration must be given to the target resources of concern. This should include provisions to meet the physical, hydraulic, and biological...

Role of Vegetation in Hydraulics of Channel Restoration
Boundary layer theory is used to develop a backwater model for flows through vegetated waterways which can be employed to approximately estimate flow depth variation in channel restoration...

The Sawmill Creek Watershed Restoration Project
The Sawmill Creek project is a comprehensive watershed restoration effort. The goal is to demonstrate that existing programs can be coordinated in order to improve water quality, and habitat...

Reduction of Sediment Loads in DEC Streams
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Demonstration Erosion Control (DEC) project is actively involved in the stabilization and restoration of many drastically disturbed incising streams in...

Quail Creek: A Case Study of Restoration Using Native Materials
Quail Creek, a stream in northern Baltimore County, Maryland, was restored in 1990 using the approach developed by Rosgen to diagnose the problems, and determine the parameters for stable...

Design Guidance—Instream and Bank Restoration Structures
Despite an urgent need for river and stream restoration design criteria, little guidance has emerged in recent years. Existing guidance is largely unsatisfactory, promoting empiricism...

River Restoration Considerations Beyond Channel Design
Restoration of river systems in highly disturbed environments poses unique challenges beyond channel design. The Jordan Creek Restoration project in Idaho was conducted in a valley disturbed...

Environmental Restoration Measures on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway (TENN-TOM)
The Tenn-Tom, opened to navigation traffic in 1985, was designed and constructed to promote environmentally sustainable development. During the past ten years, the original measures have...

Channel Restoration of Incising, Mixed Grain Size Streams: Lessons Learned
Aquatic habitat restoration in incising sand and gravel bed streams disturbed by channelization and other human interventions has received little study. These channel systems are characterized...

Restoration of Abandoned Meanders on the Middle Fork Forked Deer River, Tennessee
The Middle Fork Forked Deer River in western Tennessee historically had a sinuous course within a wide floodplain. In the early 1900's, local interests dug large straight...

Channel Restoration Project along Toby Creek
Creek banks within Mecklenburg County, NC, are eroding, producing excessive quantities of sediment in the creek and causing bank instability. Seeking innovative approaches to these problems,...

South Platte River Restoration through Maintenance
This paper describes the use of restorative maintenance activities by the Urban Drainage and Flood Control District to clean up, stabilize and restore river banks and grade along the South...

Tributary No. 9 Restoration, Maryland State Highway Administration
The Maryland State Highway Administration agreed to accomplish restoration of 1,100 feet of stream channel as part of a mitigation agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore...

Wetland Restoration in Southern North Sea Coastal Areas: The Experience of Britain and The Netherlands
Over the past 500 years, extensive reclamation of tidal wetland areas in the lowlands surrounding the Southern North Sea has taken place. In the Netherlands, reclamation has been an essential...

Acquisition and Restoration of a Drainage District in the Snohomish River Valley
The purpose of this paper is to present an overview of the efforts by Snohomish County to acquire a drainage district (Drainage District 6) in the lower Snohomish River valley and restore...

Restoration Design for Urban Streams: Anacostia River Basin, Maryland
Several stream restoration projects have been undertaken by the Army Corps of Engineers in the Maryland portion of the Anacostia River basin. Measures used include bank stabilization,...
