Catawba Falls Stream & Wetland Restoration

S&EC prepared restoration design plans for approximately 1,000 linear feet of mountain stream and approximately 3 acres of wetlands that were inadvertently impacted as a result of development activities within an 1,800 acre residential property near Black Mountain, in McDowell County, NC.  The project scope included evaluation of existing impaired/impacted site conditions, the development of a conceptual restoration plan, the development of construction documents including Construction Drawings and Technical Specifications, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and N.C. Division of Water Quality (DWQ) regulatory coordination, contractor coordination and construction oversight, and success monitoring.  Stream restoration utilized collected reference reach data and Rosgen-based natural channel design methodologies.
