Reconnecting through Stream Restoration

Reconnecting through Stream Restoration

(p.163) Chapter Fifteen Reconnecting through Stream Restoration
Water in Kentucky

Carmen T. Agouridis

University Press of Kentucky

Abstract: Streams play a critical role in the movement of water, sediment and nutrients across our landscape. Streams provide habitat to both aquatic and terrestrial life, and in many instances, streams support societal needs such as transportation and recreation. As such, streams are a vital part of our environment. Unfortunately, anthropogenic activities such as urbanization, agriculture, and resource extraction have degraded many of our streams to the point where they can no longer provide many of these services. Through stream restoration, we are able to restore many of these ecosystem functions while also reconnecting people and communities to streams.
