Detailed Description

Faith Fitzpatrick (U.S. Geological Survey), Keith Underwood (Underwood and Assoc.), Erik Michelsen (South River Federation), and Joe Berg (BioHabitats, Inc.) discuss how a degraded headwater ephemeral gully in a residential area was retrofitted with sand seepage and step-pool systems to reduce erosion and improve water quality as well as aquatic and riparian habitat. Trees along the banks of the channel remain unharmed after restoration because the throat of the stream is used for construction traffic.
