About the project:  The C. Milton Wright Stream Restoration located in Bel Air, MD was designed and constructed by RES to meet Harford County's MS4 nutrient reduction goals.

Project Highlights:

  • Drainage Area: 24 acres upstream to 80 acres downstream. Predominantly zoned for Urban Residential
  • Stream Order: 2nd Order, perennial tributary to Bynum Run
  • Watershed: Bynum Run Watershed
  • Design Approach: Stabilize stream and increase floodplain connectivity through natural channel/Rosgen design philosophy
  • Design Discharge: Varies by reach from 8.1 cfs to 18.1 cfs
  • Flood Frequency: Between 1.1-1.25 RI on larger systems, between 1.5-2 on smaller tribs

Design objectives:

  • Enhance floodplain connectivity and storm flow dispersion
  • Stabilize stream pattern, bed, and banks
  • Improve habitat and ecological function

  • Enhance buffer function with native plantings

  • Increase bank stability, provide shade for the stream and absorb nutrients from overland and subsurface flows 

  • Reduce nutrient loading
