Responding to severe erosion in John Matthews Creek ravine, and resulting sediment deposit that threatened downstream infrastructure and fish habitat, we developed an innovative restoration design. The ravine restoration used considerable fill and native vegetation to create a stable, step-drop profile, reducing erosion and encouraging fish migration. A diversion structure and pipe below the channel ensures baseflows, while eliminating excessive flows from the creek.
