The Maryland Department of Transportation, State Highway Administration (SHA) selected RES to perform Full Delivery Stream Restoration Services. RES was awarded seven sites, resulting in a total of 28,130 linear feet of stream restoration. For each, RES is responsible for site selection, land acquisition, survey, design, permitting, construction, monitoring, and adaptive management to support the SHA’s Chesapeake Bay restoration goals. The team is performing restoration efforts in multiple counties across the state including Anne Arundel, Baltimore, and Frederick. Environmental feasibility services provided by RES included delineation of wetlands and streams on the site subject to jurisdiction by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. RES utilized the currently accepted 1987 Corps of Engineers Wetlands Delineation Manual, and appropriate Regional Supplement, to delineate and flag potentially jurisdictional areas on-site, as well as collect all necessary data. Site design is a team effort, with designs provided by RES’ in-house stream designers and engineers as well as from staff of our partner firms. This collaborative team will also provide oversight during construction to ensure project components are built according to approved plans. Stream construction tasks will consist of mobilization, erosion and sediment control installation, clearing and grubbing, maintenance of stream flow, rock/log structure installation, riffle grade control installation, bank stabilization matting, seeding, and planting.
