“This web site is about using a combination of fluvial geomorphology, hydraulics, hydrology, and aquatic biologic attributes to accomplish natural channel restoration. The Water Quality and Quantity Technology Development Team (W2Q) approach to natural channel restoration is unique in that the planning processes and the practices described herein are based upon restoration alternatives that have been implemented, monitored, and found to be geomorphically self-sustaining (transporting load in stable manner while maintaining the local deposition and scour with naturally stable banks). The geomorphic restoration sites below have been field-checked for response.

If floodplain restoration, channel formative physics, and aquatic assemblages are included in your objectives you are at the right web site. Variations of geomorphic natural channel restoration planning re-establishing floodplain connectivity can occur on wide a distribution of socio-economic landscapes, providing a robust geomorphological analysis is completed and mutual objectives are accomplished. Resources including papers, studies, and presentations are included relevant to a geomorphic approach to natural channel restoration.”
