Completed in 2016, the Tiawassee Stream Restoration Project was angulated around the sediment and erosion that were being delivered into the Gulf by this watershed. Funded by the Coastal Impact Assistant Program and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation this project’s goals were not only to help alleviate the sediment load, but also to provide habitat to aquatic and terrestrial species. Onsite logs were used during construction to serve as grade control for the newly aligned channel bed. Riparian plant species were planted to re-establish the native plant communities and help with stabilization of the 1,150′ channel. Connectivity to the floodplain to accommodate future high flows was also an important goal of this project due to lack of cohesion of the soils.
