Habitat Assessment and Stream Restoration

We can assess the health of aquatic systems by using various habitat criteria, depending on the regional or state protocols that may be applicable. StreamTechs has assessed the aquatic habitat of hundreds of river miles in various urban and rural regions in the eastern United States. Principles of the Rosgen classification system and North Carolina Stream Restoration Institute are applied in assessing the physical characteristics of streams and rivers. Habitat quality can be quantified and recommendations made for appropriate stream restoration measures.
