Coastwatch: Urban Stream Restoration

Video duration: 6:51Video has closed captioning.

Restoring urban streams is improving the state's water quality and enhancing city landscapes. Once-polluted, buried streams are receiving major facelifts as streams are transformed into healthy and viable resources through restoring native plants and animals, through natural channel design, and through a technique called "daylighting." Instructional materials are also available.
