Environmental/Stream Restoration

Stream Restoration Minden, NV

Urbanization and rampant construction have a significant impact on the environment, especially if builders do not take steps to protect the local ecosystem and work around it. At Herback General Engineering, we have seen human activity ruin natural landscapes, killing rich systems that would have improved the local environment.

An environment restoration service will help the ecosystem heal. We have worked on several projects in California, Arizona, and Nevada, hiring local subcontractors to help restore streams, woodlands, and other such areas.

What is Environmental Repair?

Environmental or stream repair is a way to restore damaged or destroyed environments. An experienced environmental restoration planner will use earth moving equipment, proven restoration techniques, and solid environmental science to improve a degraded area. The land looks, feels, and grows better after the entire restoration period is complete. A single project can include several aspects like:

  • Soil investigation and erosion control
  • Stream restoration
  • Habitat restoration
  • Steep slope stabilization and restoration
  • Irrigation design and restoration
  • Wetland restoration
  • And more

As an experienced company, we aim for low-maintenance and durable solutions because that helps preserve the long-term health of an ecosystem. If the restoration is too challenging to maintain, it will not last, and the land will need a full repair once again. 

Stream Restoration Before and After

Streams restore life to a dehydrated and desolate land. With our environmental planner’s help, you will see the area surrounding a restored stream flourish in a short amount of time. We use the latest ecological restoration methods to get the desired results. Here is a look at some of the approaches our experts take for stream restoration:

  • Cross-vanes reduce bank erosion and redirect the flow of water to a central channel.
  • Log vane involves placing large logs along the bank to redirect fast water from banks, which also helps prevent erosion.
  • Grading and planting maintain stream direction and flow while preventing erosion. The trees with mature roots keep the fertile soil anchored in place even when the stream is full and fast.
  • Wood debris control erosion provides a buffer for the stream bank and offers several shelter areas to encourage aquatic life. Debris will encourage underwater ecosystem development.

We also use techniques like step pools, bush layering, and planting to restore a stream while encouraging ecological development.
