Full Public Notice    Project Plans    Design Report

HCFCD proposes to create a new stable channel that is connected to a new wider geomorphic floodplain through the use of natural channel design techniques.  The new geomorphic channel will include a native woody riparian buffer with a restored hydrologic connection to the upper Langham Creek watershed, thereby re-establishing aquatic resource functions. The purpose of the proposed project is to restore hydrologic, hydraulic, and geomorphic stream functions of Langham Creek by reconnecting the upstream hydrology with a new channel with stable dimension, pattern, and profile while also enhancing water quality and riparian habitat. The establishment of a native woody riparian buffer may also support improved physicochemical and biological stream functions in the future, but the immediate objectives of the project are to restore the essential natural stream functions of hydrology, hydraulics, and geomorphology in Langham Creek.  The Langham Creek channel will be restored using the Rosgen Priority Level 2 Restoration Approach.  The objective of a Priority Level 2 Restoration project is to create a new floodplain and stable stream with proper dimension, pattern, and profile characteristics.
