  • Development: Development can lead to the loss of stream habitat and the degradation of stream quality.

How to Restore a Stream

The process of stream restoration can vary depending on the specific conditions of the stream. However, there are some general steps that can be followed:

  3. Implement the restoration plan: The restoration plan should be implemented carefully and monitored closely to ensure that the desired results are achieved.
