Stone Path Subdivision Army Corps of Engineers Permit Compliance

In order to ensure compliance with the Army Corps of Engineers 404 Permit a small section of stream was restored due to stream impacts from subdivision construction. To keep in compliance, the restoration had to ensure aquatic passage and keep overall stream impacts limited to 150 feet. A culvert was installed but could not be lowered to desired grade due to bedrock. A series of step pools were installed downstream of the culvert to lower the stream grade, allow aquatic passage, and prevent erosion. This stream restoration kept the overall subdivision project in compliance with the Army Corp of Engineers Permit.
