The demand for urban green space is increasing while availability is decreasing. The value of urban green space is that it conserves critical characteristics of the natural landscape within the urban setting. The characteristics are essential for the function of ecological processes necessary for the sustainability of an ecosystem. These goods and services we extract from ecosystems are called ecological services. The goal of this project was to demonstrate the technologies and methods by which ecological services could be restored in a disturbed urban stream system.
