Urban Stream Processes and Restoration Program – Advanced Stream Restoration Design
Rivers and streams are at the core of many urban areas. These waterways perform many important functions such as transporting runoff and sediments, as well as providing habitat for wildlife and moderating temperatures. Natural stream design helps restore and maintain these functions and minimize negative impacts of urbanization, such as erosion and flooding. Maintaining or restoring riparian vegetation along urban streams can also improve surface water quality throughout the watershed by filtering nonpoint source pollution.
This three-day advanced workshop is being co-hosted by the Texas Riparian Association, Texas A&M AgriLife and the Texas Water Resources Institute. The training will focus on natural design processes for stream restoration projects and is more in-depth than the one-day trainings. Materials presented in the training will help attendees understand at a deeper level:
- natural stream processes,
- classification of streams using the Rosgen system,
- natural channel design techniques,
- regulatory overview,
- stream survey procedures,
- bioassessment, and
- natural design structures.
