NRCS Team: Nathalie Flores, Jessica Wilbarger

2007-2008: In collaboration with the Natural Resources Conservation Service, this student team developed a design to stabilize a reach of the Roaring Brook Stream in Whately, MA and restore the stream channel equilibrium to protect a house and barn on an adjacent property.

The team analyzed existing conditions though hydrologic and hydraulic modeling, identified and modeled design options to stabilize the stream, met with the local homeowner to select a final design, and prepared final design documents including construction drawings and cost estimates.
