Stream Restoration

Bushkill Creek Stream Rehabilitation Project
Northampton County, Pennsylvania

F. X. Browne, Inc. designed an integrated bioengineering system for 700 linear feet of eroding streambank on the inside bend of Bushkill Creek. The project area is located in Northampton County within Jacobsburg State Park.  The project objectives included providing several stabilized public access points to the creek, providing on-going erosion control, and improving in-stream habitat.  The final design consisted of an integrated live-cribwall and vegetated geogrid system.  Nine streamflow deflectors were also designed for the project to promote point bar formation.  Rosgen assessment and HEC-RAS modeling were used in the design process and natural channel design principles were followed in developing the conceptual approach for the design.
