KY Stream Restoration

KY Stream Restoration

Stream restoration design and monitoring at this site in Whitley County, Kentucky has resulted in an increase in aquatic resources across the watershed. Macroinvertebrate communities have been re-established and the riparian zones have been replanted with trees and shrubs that are native the Kentucky. The stream channels were also reshaped to provide the channel access to a flood plain and reduce incision. Contact us or request a quote today. See additional services here.

Stream mitigation including stream restoration design and construction monitoring services. Whether it is a baseline study or full stream restoration design plan our team regularly performs these tasks to help our clients meet their project goals. Using Rosgen and standard survey trained stream restoration specialists, Biological Systems Consultants provides their clients with longitudinal profiles, profile and dimension information (plan-views, cross-sections), pebble counts, and complete Rosgen stream assessments. Using existing stream conditions or reference streams, Biological Systems Consultants provides detailed stream channel information for these types of projects.

Using our EcoDrones (UAV, sUAS, Drones) Biological Systems Consultants can also assist in stream or wetland mitigation or bond releases or pre, post, and during construction monitoring, baseline assessments by providing video, still images, or 3D modeling of sites. Capturing low-elevation data we can create or provide highly accurate DEM (digital elevation models or elevation point clouds) data to our clients to work with. This technology allows us to capture millions of points, exponentially greater than traditional survey methods. This method is also safer than putting a traditional airplane into the sky. Using the latest available technology we aim to save our clients time and money in the field and in the office and can deploy EcoDrones very quickly to complete projects.

Archaeological Surveys

Archaeological surveys for Section 106 review typically requires a phase I archaeological survey using surface and subsurface investigative techniques. During this survey we encountered many Sandstone Outcrops like the one pictured below extending out of the local topography within steeply cut valleys. Biological Systems Consultants’ archaeological survey team is equipped to take on all of your cultural resource survey needs. Our staff is fully permitted and qualified to conduct surveys for historic and prehistoric sites and has extensive experience with Section 106 compliance. If you have any questions about your Section 106 compliance  or have been requested to address archaeological resources on your project for any reason, please give us a call and we will be happy to walk you through the process and take care of all your archaeological survey needs.

We can walk you through the process of conducting your archaeological survey in many states including but not limited to Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, Alabama, Illinois, Louisiana, and Massachusetts. Call us or request a quote today.
