Suitable rivers and streams are populated by a plethora of species. These areas also tend to serve as a recreational oasis for nature lovers. Disturbances to the streambank and to the stream itself, such as erosion, changes in watershed reach level, vegetation changes or losses and animal or human interaction can damage the livelihood of not only the river itself, but the system of the stream as well. When these natural disturbances occur, precautionary measures must be taken in order to obtain a healthy habitat.

The Purpose of River Restoration

River restoration is a practice of set activities that help improve the nature and environmental health of a river stream. The goal is to return to it, the stream’s, natural functions and to reconnect the stream back to its floodplain. Typically, a stream restoration company is hired to complete restoration service tasks such as reversing the damages done to headwater streams, flood management and landscape development, creating passes for fish, adding zone regulations and weir removal.

Federal Laws That Protect Water Based Habitats

The Clean Water Act is a federal law that regulates the discharge of pollutants and requires that stream bank restoration take place in order to maintain the chemical, biological and physical integrity of the nation’s waters. Under the Water Resources Development Act, the United States Army Corps of Engineers has the authority to undertake any kinds of restoration projects—making them entitled to act as a stream restoration company. Lastly, the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit benefits to the stream bank restoration process because of its regulatory control of point sources that discharge water pollution in to the water of the United States. The permit prompts MS4 permitted communities to perform watershed improvements such as stream restoration.

Restoration Services

Our restoration company offers channel monitoring, erosion protection, sediment transport and streambank stabilization amongst other services. Streambank erosion is a common and natural occurrence due to changes in watershed reach levels, vegetation loss and channel excavation. Streambank restoration requires regrading the ground to follow a gentler slope in order to allow for more stability and better protection for existing trees. As for erosion protection, adding more vegetation and rocks to the terrain and building a wall between the water and the streambank will reduce erosion and downstream sedimentation. Streambank restoration provides a healthy habitat to fish and other wide life, while obtaining a proper aesthetic for those who want to recreationally enjoy the benefits of a river.
