Erosion and sedimentation caused by human activities are major contributors to poor water quality in the Great Lakes. Pennsylvania Sea Grant works to identify and restore impaired stream corridors by implementing various techniques such as riparian buffer conservation, enhancing adjacent vegetation quantity and quality, reducing steep slopes, and the construction of various in-stream improvements. The purpose of these improvements is to restore the function and self-sustaining behavior of the stream system that existed prior to any disturbance.
