University of Arkansas Stadium Drive-Bulldog Branch – Fayetteville, Arkansas

Before

After

The WCRC has restored, approximately, 550 feet of Bulldog Branch located on the campus of the University of Arkansas.

The upstream area of the project did not require heavy equipment construction.  The area was treated to eliminate invasive plants and native vegetation was incorporated along the riparian. The remaining portion of the channel, from the 30” stormwater outfall to the box culvert underneath Stadium Drive, required heavy equipment construction and the installation and construction of stacked rock at the toe of some of the streambanks, rock structures, and flood plains features.  The area was finished with the installation of coir fiber soil encapsulation blocks and erosion control fabric that was planted during construction.  Slopes and terraces were planted with native vegetation.
