Washington Stream Restoration

Departments: HMEI & Civil & Chemical Engineering

Project Summary: In 2012, the University completed a natural restoration of the stream along Washington Road to mitigate flood risks and improve the riparian habitat. Preliminary analysis of nutrient composition, dissolved oxygen, and water clarity from several research projects and undergraduate coursework under HMEI's ENV program indicate a healthier stream environment compared to pre-restoration conditions.
