South Fork Curry's Fork

Stream and Wetlands Restoration

 

The purpose of this project was to mitigate stream losses in the Salt River Basin by restoring approximately 3,734 ft of South Fork Curry’s Fork and seven smaller tributaries. Rather than focusing on precise channel alignments and shape, more emphasis was placed on rock gradient controls built across the floodplain valley. This method allows the stream to develop its own micro patterns and variations within a larger, stable and controlled context.
