Restoring and Managing Stream Greenways: a landowner's handbook

Published by NIPC in April 1998. From the introduction: " This handbook presents an approach for managing stream corridors which preserves and enhances their natural functions. Improved stream corridor management, in conjunction with better controls on watershed development, can substantially reduce the potential for stream degradation, loss of beneficial uses, and costly damages to property. Improved stream management techniques also can be used to reclaim degraded streams, restoring aesthetics, water quality, and aquatic life.

"The recommended stream management approach uses low-cost, ecologically-sensitive techniques that are targeted to streamside landowners. This handbook addresses a range of common management concerns, including streamside landscaping, channel maintenance, and streambank stabilization. It provides a framework for improved stream corridor management but is not intended to be a definitive design manual."
