The WCRC proposes to complete a final design, obtain permits, and implement the stream restoration project along Town Branch in Bentonville, Arkansas. The restoration area consists of approximately 2,400 linear feet of restoration activity along Town Branch. The WCRC will collect additional data as needed to develop a final design that meets permitting requirements. The WCRC will conduct all work required to implement the stream restoration including materials procurement, contractor selection, construction oversight, and implementation of a site re-vegetation plan.
Before construction at Town Branch
The over-arching goal of the work will be to construct a natural channel that is able to protect park and trail infrastructure, help to improve water quality, and improve the appearance of the City’s natural landscape. Bed features such as riffles and pools will be designed and constructed based on the stream morphology. Rock vanes and toe wood structures will be used to stabilize the streambanks and create aquatic habitat. Also, riparian areas will be re-vegetated with native species of plants and invasive vegetation will be removed.
