Practitioners Tips for Low-tech Stream Restoration in Utah

Summary:
Low-tech restoration continues to be popular for restoring degraded streams in the West. To supplement published resources, we present additional information and tips that are specific for practitioners in Utah in order to estimate project costs, staffing, and permits.

Full Abstract:
Low-tech restoration, mainly beaver dam analogues and post assisted log structures, continues to be popular for restoring degraded streams in the West because it is affordable and effective. In 2019 Utah State University published a comprehensive design manual titled “Low-tech Process-based Restoration of Riverscapes” which provides excellent detail on the implementation of low-tech restoration. We provide additional information that is specific for practitioners in Utah in order to estimate project costs, staffing, and permitting timelines. We also provide helpful tips and considerations for project managers.
