Session C2 - Stream Simulation: Analytical versus Standards based design methodology

Abstract
Stream simulation by USFS definition is a channel that simulates characteristics of the adjacent natural channel (reference reach), and presents no more of a challenge to movement of aquatic organisms than the natural channel. How to design the channel and road crossing varies in detail widely from state to state. Standard requirements can force a design rather than inform it. Analytical based design provides the designer with an understanding of potential channel adjustments and risks at the site based on differences in channel types and geomorphic context on which to base design decisions. Common pitfalls in stream simulation design and application will be discussed along with recent stream simulation flood response from Hurricane Irene.
