Stream Buffers 101

Stream buffers are natural areas adjacent to streams and waterways that remain free of ­devel­opment, con­struction, or other alterations and play an important role in maintaining predevelopment water quality. The riparian vegetation stabilizes stream channels, provides terrestrial and aquatic habitat, slows runoff rates, reduces runoff volume, and filters development runoff.

Working the Channels

Working the Channels

For erosion control specialists, channel stabilization can bring a host of challenges. Working around water means choosing solutions that will be durable and environmentally friendly at the same time. Approaches may include the combination of hard and soft armor or vegetative techniques.

There’s an old advertising saying: “You never see a piano ad unless you’re in the market to buy a piano.” And this might also be true of stormwater inlets. The ubiquitous receptacles are such a routine feature of streets and parking lots that they’re virtually invisible. But, if you are
