About This Publication

U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and US Army Corps of Engineers Joint Publication

The Ecosystem Management and Restoration Research and EWN programs have joined with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation’s Office of Science and Technology and Sedimentation and River Hydraulics Group to produce a design support manual on large wood utilization in river and floodplain restoration. The target audience is the entire community of restoration practice. The manual addresses project planning, geomorphic effects, ecological responses, design and engineering, risk issues, regulatory considerations, project implementation and staging, monitoring and adaptive management, active and passive restoration techniques, large wood dynamics in peak flows, and large wood utilization and considerations in flood response.
