Biohabitats Collaboration Project

The District Department of the Environment (DDOE) Watershed Protection Division (WPD) is using grant funds from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) to install and monitor the performance of Regenerative Stormwater Conveyance systems (RSCs) in an ultra-urban watershed.

DDOE has led coordination of the design and installation of two RSC restoration projects in small urban catchments. The Linnean Park project is one of these two projects. This construction project designed by Bio Habitats  has restored approximately 850 linear feet of urban stream by reducing erosive forces, promoting infiltration for groundwater recharge, expanding the riparian tree cover, and creating conditions conducive to restore wildlife habitat.
