The County’s current policy of using “stream restoration” projects to convert our forested natural stream valleys into engineered drainage channels for stormwater runoff is in direct contradiction to the CAP's goal. Every foot of “stream restoration” involves the loss of forested areas, and “To date, the County has completed stream restoration projects, restoring almost 30,000 linear feet of stream…” per the latest report on meeting the MS4 Permit.
The CAP should strictly prohibit the practice of “stream restorations” until the re-examination of this issue has taken place via a dialog among all stakeholders.
