Unnamed Tributary to Beaver Creek Stream Restoration

RETTEW developed a comprehensive stream restoration and riparian forest buffer plan to address stream impairments along a tributary in West Hanover Township to meet the sediment and nutrient reduction requirements of the MS4 Permit. The project focused on stabilizing 465 feet of the stream channel and planting 116 native trees and shrubs within Lenker Park, a property owned by the Township.

This initiative aimed to significantly enhance local water quality, particularly at the project site, while also creating improved habitat conditions for aquatic species and boosting biodiversity among native wildlife. Additionally, the project served as an educational opportunity for the community, highlighting the advantages and importance of such water quality initiatives.

By reducing sediment runoff by an estimated 35,000 pounds per year, this stream restoration project demonstrates the tangible benefits of strategic environmental management. Through collaboration and careful planning, RETTEW helped preserve and enhance the natural ecosystems within this region.
