Kanawha Sapsucker Run Stream Restoration Project
The Kanawha Sapsucker Run Stream Restoration Project is a stream restoration project funded by Ecosystem Investment Partners (EIP).
Bluegrass Stream is providing the construction and implementation of design. Civil & Environmental Consultants Inc. (CEC) is performing the engineering tasks.
The Kanawha Sapsucker Run project is located in Mason County, West Virginia, in the lower Kanawha watershed. The restoration project includes preservation, enhancement, establishment, and re-establishment of approximately 40,000 linear feet of various streams.
Various structures such as rock and log j-hook vanes, constructed riffles, rock/log native riffles, and vertical snags will be used to provide grade control, bank stabilization, and aquatic habitat to the restored watershed. Native trees, shrubs and grasses will be planted throughout the riparian corridor of the mitigation site as well.
