Restoring Flood Attenuation and Ecological Resiliency in the Mid-Atlantic Piedmont

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

For this project, scientists and watershed restoration professionals restore one headwater basin to reduce flooding downstream, improve water quality, and increase stream-ecosystem resilience so that it will once again support a breeding population of native brook trout and other coldwater fish. Pre- and post-project measures of water quality, hydrologic regime, and biological communities will determine the project’s effectiveness.
