Stream Assessment

A County-wide stream assessment was completed from 2011-2012 to determine stream condition and restoration potential to develop a prioritized list of stream restoration projects as part of the Stormwater Master Plan.

Stream restoration can reduce stream bank erosion and downstream sedimentation and improve stream habitat for aquatic organisms. Stream restoration can also protect nearby storm and sanitary sewer and potable water infrastructure in a way that’s more sustainable than hardening the stream crossing or using other pipe protection methods.

The County-wide stream assessment looked closely at both physical stream conditions and infrastructure conditions with the goal of developing restoration priorities for specific stream systems and surrounding infrastructure.
