Restoration Design

Portland, Oregon, EEUU • 2-6 November 2009

Recent research has found that many river restoration designs fail because they were created to achieve a preconceived notion of the ideal form and function of the stream without recognizing the dynamic processes at work in that watershed.

Others fail due to lack of sound alternatives analysis and fundamental engineering. The most successful rely on a fusion of stream mechanics knowledge and progressive design techniques.

This approach establishes and supports those stream processes that create and maintain channel form and associated habitats.
