RiverRestoration.org is dedicated to resolving River issues. RiverRestoration.org provides the creative planning, engineering and technical support required in any successful river project. Our philosophy is to take a whole system approach to river projects to meet the multiple needs of ecology, recreation and water users for an overall higher functioning system. We identify degradations, uncover use issues and site constaints, and find solutions that benefit the whole system.

RiverRestoration.org is coordinating the design and implementation of sediment stabilization and removal projects in Black Gore Creek. These projects utilize new techniques and creative solutions for reducing the impact of sediment on the watershed such as sand wanding, geo-tubes and log cribbings. RiverRestoration.org identified potential projects outside of the highway corridor.
