Small Urban Watershed Restoration
Urban watershed restoration has recently evolved into a growing and sophisticated practice. This course introduces the basic concepts and techniques of urban watershed restoration, and sets forth the overall framework we use to evaluate subwatershed restoration potential. It presents the basic concepts used to restore urban streams, and outlines an integrated and practical framework for assessing restoration potential in small urban watersheds. It emphasizes how past subwatershed alterations must be understood in order to set realistic expectations for future restoration. Toward this end, the course presents a simple subwatershed classification system to define expected stream impacts and restoration potential.
This course is intended for a broad audience with an interest in the methods and techniques to restore small urban watersheds, including planners, engineers, agency staff, watershed groups, and environmental consultants.
