This 3-day workshop introduces concepts of stream restoration using natural channel design techniques. Students work in small groups in the field to assess existing stream condition geomorphic conditions and develop reference reach design parameters. Students work in small groups in the classroom to apply morphological design parameters to create a case study stream design for channel dimension, pattern, and profile. Design products include stream channel layouts, typical cross-sections, and longitudinal profiles, and basic hydraulic and sediment transport calculations. Other topics include in-stream structures, plan sheet development, design specifications, and construction. Students should bring field gear, waders, and a laptop for spreadsheet calculations. This workshop requires completion of RC 101 or equivalent background in stream morphology assessment and terminology.
