Recreating Baseflow Channels for Improved Stormwater Nutrient and Sediment Uptake (USGS, 2011)

Description: Faith Fitzpatrick (U.S. Geological Survey) and Joe Berg (BioHabitats, Inc.) describe base-flow channels and sand seepage wetlands in a wetland complex at an old millpond setting along a highly urban section of Howards Branch. Recreated baseflow channels enhance changes in width with increased stormwater flow. These channels maximize the effectiveness of floodplain vegetation and nutrient/sediment uptake.
