My story aims to spread this idea of stream restoration using a specific design, and to teach why stream restoration is important to our environment, and how different measures can be taken to restore a stream.
The stream in your backyard
The idea behind this design is to try our best as humans to maintain a healthy, natural ecosystem. The method is self-sustaining, the energy of the stream and the formation of the rocks will do the work themselves without human interference following the original addition in the stream if installed correctly. In result, the benefits can be critical, such as stabilizing banks without planting invasive plants to stabilize with their roots, it creates more exchange of materials between the soils beneath the stream and the water channel itself, and provides a better habitat for aquatic and fish species.
