Restoration of Streams in the Midwest


Duration: 1 Hour

Presented by: Jonathan Koepke, CPESC

Streambank and bed erosion is a significant issue, especially in urban and urbanizing areas where property, infrastructure, and habitat can be lost. These issues require specialized knowledge and techniques to effectively solve in a sustainable manner. This presentation will review the various types of erosion that occur in urban streams and the different practices and products utilized to address them, including why certain practices fail where others succeed. The importance of site evaluation, geomorphic processes, knowledge of hydraulic forces, and limitations of various technologies and practices will be a focus of the presentation.
