Rose Run Stream Restoration Landscaping
New Albany, OH
EMH&T has provided services to the City of New Albany related to multiple restoration projects to improve the habitat conditions of Rose Run, a headwater stream within the Rocky Fork watershed. Initially, we provided comprehensive engineering and environmental services for the removal of two lowhead dams and restoration of a 1,400-foot section of the channel under the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Section 594 grant funding program. In conjunction with this effort, the EMH&T Landscape Division performed a design-build native planting enhancement of the 1,400 linear foot restored stream reach, and an additional 4,500 linear feet of riparian buffer along Rose Run. Subsequently, we assisted the City with obtaining a Section 319(h) grant from the Ohio EPA for an upstream extension of the previous restoration project, along with a supplemental retrofit of a stormwater basin within the Rose Run watershed. EMH&T again provided design-build services, completing the planting plan and material installation for both the riparian corridor and the stormwater wetland. Finally, we designed and assisted in the construction of a third restoration project along Rose Run, as part of a mitigation project. The EMH&T Landscape Division provided riparian planting enhancement along more than 3,000 linear feet of Rose Run as part of this effort.
