Unnamed Tributary to Manada Creek Stream Restoration

As part of their pollution reduction plan, South Hanover Township completed an MS4 project involving a stream restoration for an unnamed tributary to Manada Creek. The site was chosen to undergo a restoration to correct erosion problems that, over time, created steep eroded streambanks throughout portions of the creek. Located just east of the Sand Beach Road and East Canal Road intersection, the site primarily consists of large open floodplains dominated by herbaceous vegetation and a forested riparian area.

RETTEW restored approximately 1,900 LF of stream along this stretch of the creek. The work included installing 9 mudsills, 4 boulder walls, 3 rock deflectors, 3 sections of toe boulder, 2 cross vanes, and 15 root wads. In addition, approximately 470 tree saplings were planted throughout the riparian buffer. Through this project, the Township improved local water quality at the site, enhanced habitat for aquatic species, and increased biodiversity and habitat for native wildlife. Approximately 90,000 pounds per year of sediment reduction were realized through this stream restoration project.
