Numerous stream restoration projects are being undertaken in North Carolina for the purpose of improving stream stability, water quality, and aquatic habitat. These projects typically involve geomorphic and biological assessments to determine existing conditions, engineering designs, stream channel construction, streambank stabilization, riparian corridor enhancements, and follow-up monitoring to determine project success. This paper describes specific applications of natural channel design techniques and lessons learned from several urban stream restoration projects throughout North Carolina. Results are beneficial to stream project managers and designers to ensure effective use of public resources in stream restoration projects.
