Urban Stream Restoration Producer Ron Schilling


"Stream Restoration for the 21st Century. Use this info!"
~ Peter Lavigne, Portland State University Watershed Management Program

"...a superb primer on stream restoration in urban settings. It imparts, in a way that is not daunting to the viewer, that stream restoration is a difficult, complicated, and incredibly worthwhile process with huge benefits for urban communities."
~ Sara Hatfield, Puget Sound Urban Resources Partnership

"I have a copy and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in stream restoration. Ann did her PhD work under Luna Leopold and she knows her stuff."
~ Russell C. Dutnell, P.E., Environmental Engineer
formerly with Water Quality Programs, Oklahoma Conservation Commission

"Great piece of work. Marvelously produced. I particularly found the application of fluvial geomorphology (designing with bankful/dominant discharge in mind) to be clear, succinct and meaningful in doing design and bioengineering construction."
~ William P. White, Illinois Dept. of Natural Resources
