CARDINAL STREAM RESTORATION
CARDINAL GREENWAYS, INC.
An eroded ditch with severe headcuts was reconstructed using the Rosgen Method and vegetative practices. A survey and pebble count was conducted. Based upon that information, it was determined that the stream was a G6 in the Rosgen Classification system, with a sinuosity of >1.2, an entrenchment ratio of <1.4, a width to depth ratio of <12, and a slope of .02-.039.

Using the regional curve for Ohio and the drainage area (.001 square miles), it was determined that the stream should be a B5 type stream. This type has a sinuosity of >1.2, an entrenchment ratio of 1.4-2.2, a width to depth ratio of >12, and a slope of .02-.039.

Despite the slope for both classes being the same range, the stream’s slope changed from 0.03 to 0.028. Using this information, the stream was redesigned to meet these criteria.

Live stakes, brush layering, coir logs, erosion fabric, and native herbaceous vegetation strengthened the channel, reducing the extremity and effects of future erosion.
