Plumtree Run Stream Restoration Phase III Section 4
What is a stream restoration?
Stream restoration is a set of techniques or methods the Town uses to protect adjacent properties and public infrastructure by reducing stream bank erosion, minimizing the down-cutting of stream bed, and restoring aquatic ecosystems (natural stream system).
Restoration techniques typically use natural materials such as rock, logs, and native plants to help slow down stormwater flow and restore the natural meander of curve pattern found in stable streams. They are usually done in larger scale projects utilizing large equipment to mobilize plants and rocks.
