Form & Function


For the Next Generation 


Over time, natural water systems can fail. The cause may be high-velocity flows created by storms or simply farm animals trampling stream banks in search of water, but – regardless of the reason – a stream under stress is bad for aquatic life, bad for water quality, and often bad for farm animals which can fall over banks and/or become trapped in an incised reach. We have a long history of collaborating with landowners, soil conservation districts, and local governments to create plan sets that re-establish balance, deliver clean water, improve habitat, and maximize functional uplift.
