Stream Restoration: Updating the 1976 Plan for the Little Duck Creek Corridor

This team addressed the restoration of the Little Duck Creek Corridor based on the current stream restoration theory. While the 1976 Plan for the Little Duck Creek was based on the channelization theory which prescribes high level of interventions on the natural characteristics of the stream, the current stream theory prescribes the use of natural materials and the mantenance of the streamís natural aspects. This group of students compared the reccommendations of the 1976 plan to the current stream conditions and land uses along the Little Duck Creek corridor. Finally, the team analyzed different categories of community interest on the project describing the existing conditions, the proposed interventions, and the possible issues of each intervention.
