Abstract
  • The practice of river and stream restoration has increased with heightened environmental concerns and awareness. Many of these projects use structural modifications in an attempt to mimic natural landscapes. These structural modifications represent an active approach to river and stream restoration. Active restoration projects are well funded and extensively constructed. However, active efforts often fail due to poor design or as a result of adjacent poor land management practices. Passive restoration offers a less expensive, and often more successful alternative to river and stream restoration. The passive approach concentrates on eliminating damaging land management practices and allows the natural healing process to take place. Passive restoration efforts will likely provide more long-term benefits to rivers and streams than more expensive and sometimes detrimental active manipulation.
