Beaver Creek Stream Restoration

RETTEW devised a comprehensive stream restoration and riparian forest buffer plan targeting stream impairments in Beaver Creek, meeting requirements of the MS4 Permit to reduce sediment and nutrient loading rates. This initiative stabilized 770 feet of stream channel and introduced 318 native trees and shrubs. Working closely with our client, West Hanover Township, RETTEW facilitated the acquisition of temporary and permanent easements on private property to ensure project implementation.

The project significantly improved local water quality, enhanced habitats for aquatic species, and increased biodiversity for native wildlife. Notably, the stream restoration efforts resulted in a reduction of 35,000 pounds of sediment per year. RETTEW’s strategic approach not only revitalized the Beaver Creek ecosystem, but also showcased the effectiveness of environmental management practices and the benefits of targeted restoration actions in preserving and enriching local ecosystems.
