Case Study: Creek Relocation

Creek Relocation
Martin, TN

During the construction of a retail shopping center in Martin, TN, CCE relocated an 890 l.f. section of Little Cypress Creek to meet US Army Corps of Engineers and Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation requirements. Using “natural channel design” (fluvial geomorphology) and bio-engineering with native plant species, CCE successfully rebuilt 1,211 l.f. of stream to host local wildlife and vegetation. CCE also provided mitigation plans to both USACE and TDEC and performed the annual inspections required by their permits.
