Destruction of riparian zones opens the door to severe stream bank erosion, with numerous detrimental impacts to the watercourse at the site and especially downstream.
The 1994 habitat assessment project revealed numerous issues in the watershed that can often be attributed to poor land use and riparian zone degradation. The KWRC employs multiple restoration techniques or a combination of techniques to deal with riparian and aquatic habitat issues.
