Stream Dynamics, Inc. provides assessment, design, construction, monitoring, and maintenance for stream restoration, water harvesting earthworks, and erosion control. This includes creating proper road drainage to convert nuisance runoff into a valuable resource.
Design / Build Policy:
Successful application of watershed restoration techniques and water harvesting earthworks are intimately related to the specifics of each site. Stream Dynamics policy is hands on through the entire process from assessment, through design, build, monitoring, and maintenance. This insures fidelity to the design concept, allows us to learn from the project results, and represents a commitment to both the watershed and the landowner to adjust and repair any work until it is functioning properly within the landscape.
Stream Dynamics follows nature’s model when designing a project. Although the motion of water and sediment in a watercourse is determined by the laws of physics, these equations have constantly changing variables and are too complex to solve for natural systems. We therefore select an appropriate stable reference reach to use as an analog model.

Stream Dynamics founder Van Clothier and restoration expert Bill Zeedyk share their years of on-the-ground experience in their book: Let The Water Do The Work: Induced Meandering, an Evolving Method for Restoring Incised Channels. Learn principles of physics in water movement - energy dissipation, sediment transport, and deposition - and learn how to properly restore small and large watersheds.
