Stream restoration and mitigation

WaterScapes design and construction staff have been designing and building streams utilizing natural stream design techniques since 1998 and are responsible for the design and construction of 2.5 miles of meandering streams.  

It takes a unique set of conditions including topography, soils and hydrology to make a property suitable for construction of a meandering stream with a naturally-stable channel.  Relatively few properties provide the unique characteristics necessary for success.  

We use published literature including Applied River Morphology by Dave Rosgen to assist in our channel designs, but nothing is a substitute for experience selecting the proper site and investigating conditions of reference streams within the watershed to create the design.
