Crestwood Storm Water Master Plan

Crestwood, Missouri

Client:City of Crestwood

As a subcontractor to Camp Dresser & McKee, Terra Technologies provided natural stream and lake bank stabilization recommendations for a Storm Water Improvement Study.

The fieldwork phase of the project was completed during May through July, 2001.  The fieldwork included inspecting all of the stream and lake banks within the watershed of the City of Crestwood to characterize channel erosion and other storm water problems.  

A basic geomorphic assessment of the natural channels was performed as part of the field investigation.  Urban streams are generally in some form of transition due to changing conditions within the watershed.   Stream morphology can generally be defined as the hydrological, hydraulic and geological parameters that cause a stream to behave as it does.   Understanding the transition can allow for design considerations that accelerate and control the transition so that it does no conflict with planned property uses or infrastructure.  

Terra Technologies is currently providing applicable bioengineering recommendations for the problems identified in the study.  Bank stabilization methods are being evaluated that combine both structural and non-structural mechanisms that restore the natural riparian ecosystems and alleviate erosion problems.
