Auburn University Parkerson Mill Creek Rugby Reach: Stream Workshop Assessment Site

Instructor:  Greg Jennings, PhD, PE, Jennings Environmental PLLC

This 2-day workshop includes classroom and field learning experiences on the topics of applied fluvial geomorphology and stream restoration.  Participants will learn field stream assessment to evaluate channel and floodplain morphology, stability assessment, and restoration potential.  Presentations and field tours of local stream restoration projects will describe restoration techniques for urban streams and how to measure post-restoration geomorphic conditions.  Participants will gain an understanding of key design parameters including bankfull channel dimensions, entrenchment ratio, riffle-pool sequences, and hydraulic parameters including discharge and shear stress.  Other restoration components to be evaluated on local projects include in-stream boulder and log structures, stream bank revetments, and native riparian vegetation.
