Low-Tech Process Based Restoration of Riverscapes Design Manual
By J. Maestas | J. Wheaton | N. Bouwes | S. Bennett | S. Shahveridan
The purpose of this design manual is to provide restoration practitioners with guidelines for implementing a subset of low-tech tools—namely beaver dam analogues (BDAs) and post-assisted log structures (PALS)—for initiating process-based restoration in structurally-starved riverscapes. ‘Low-tech process-based restoration’ is a practice of using simple, low unit-cost, structural additions (e.g. wood and beaver dams) to riverscapes to mimic functions and initiate specific processes.

Working with Beaver in Pataha Creek to Restore Salmon and Steelhead Habitat: Assessment, Design, and Construction Report
By A. Hill | E. Portugal | N. Weber | R. Camp | S. Bennett
The goal of this project is to test whether a restoration method developed and tested in Bridge Creek, Oregon will be suitable for restoring streams like Pataha Creek in southeast Washington.
