The streams in these meadows are currently eroding, incising and have active headcuts. This project would help stabilize those streams. The project is for erosion control and meadow/wetland protection. The project is a restoration project, to help prevent further stream further stream incision and stabilize stream banks. The ultimate purpose is to prevent meadow dewatering and conversion of wetlands into scrub land. Fires in fall 2007 created flashier flows more capable of producing stream erosion, and this project is in response to that possibility of flashier flows.
