    Request for Sites for Maddie Berg’s Thesis 

    Let’s try to help Maddie! 

    From Maddie: 

    I’m “trying to find sites for my thesis: “A Comparison of Conveyance Channels and Floodplain Reconnection / Material Processing Channels Used in Urban Stream Restoration.” I need 12 urban sites total - 6 designed for conveyance and 6 designed for floodplain reconnection / material processing. I have found a few sites so far but it is proving difficult to find sites that have similar characteristics (age, drainage area, etc) so more site possibilities would be helpful.

    The googlesheet (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1EdM3LtnlLKtFNfaroGvFHIGmnFDWV-ICPKe7t6alYfo/edit?usp=sharing) has the names of sites that I have looked at so far (ones highlighted in blue indicate that I have Design Reports). The googlesheet also contains all the other information that I would like to gather about the site locations.  I would love to share my findings with MSRA upon completion! Any sites would be helpful and if you would like more information about my thesis project feel free to contact me.“

    MSRA is looking for a stream restoration site for our Summer Field Trip which will take place sometime between late August and early September.

    We are looking for a stream restoration site, preferably in the northern Baltimore area, which encountered some unexpected challenges during/after construction (like structure failures which had to be addressed during or after construction). We are also interested in showing off a stream that exhibited challenges of any sort during the design or construction process.

    Please send Brent Levy blevy1990@gmail.com if you have a stream restoration site that fits our criteria.
