Assessing and Restoring Low Gradient Streams Workshop 

This five day workshop is ideal for stream assessment and restoration practitioners and agencies who work in headwater coastal plain streams. The workshop starts with an overview of stream processes, including functional differences between ephemeral, intermittent, and perennial classifications. Next, a function-based assessment will be completed at a local reference reach using concepts from The Stream Functions Pyramid Framework. Participants will use the field data to determine the functional capacity of the stream and as an aid in developing design criteria, which will be applied to a case study. The last part of the course is to develop a stream restoration design for a degraded headwater, coastal-plain stream. The course includes classroom lectures, hands-on exercises, and field work.
Who Should Attend?
  • Members of Interagency Review Teams, In-Leiu Fee Providers and Mitigation Providers
  • Federal, State and Local Agencies
  • Scientists, engineers and managers who work with stream restoration and mitigation in headwater, coastal-plain regions
  • Natural channel design and stream restoration practitioners
