Burrough's Hollow Stream Restoration
Tennessee Stream Mitigation Program
Jackson County, Tennessee
The Burrough’s Hollow stream restoration project was approximately 940 linear feet of stream channel and riparian habitat restoration on Burrough’s Hollow which is a first order tributary to Blackburn Fork in Jackson County, Tennessee. Our goals for this project consisted of:
1. Improving aquatic habitat by adding riffle and pool sequence as well as woody structures such as log vanes, root wads, and etc.
2. Restore a native bottomland hardwood riparian forest along the project
3. Improve the site hydrology by reconnecting the stream channel to its original floodplain. Design was completed by Vincent Neary of Tennessee Tech. Construction was completed by Bluegrass Stream.
