Stream Restoration and Trout Habitat Improvement Services
The creation/restoration of natural features such as streams often requires in-field modifications based on specific field conditions. The design/build approach ensures that the constructed improvements function in a manner that are complementary with the surrounding environment and provide the intended design function. The design/build approach is generally more efficient for these types of projects as it allows the designer to work directly with construction operators in the field to modify or adjust for any unforeseen conditions that may be encountered, monitor development and provide direct maintenance as required. This approach also streamlines the process for clients as ERC serves as the single point of contact throughout all phases of the project providing continuity and ensuring that the full intention and potential of the project is attained.
ERC has a long-standing relationship with Tezak Heavy Equipment (Tezak) for stream work. For nearly two decades ERC/Tezak have been working together to successfully complete the full spectrum of stream restoration projects using a consistent team approach. Jointly we have completed over 50 projects. Each member of our team brings their unique expertise to the project, the history and dynamics of our tight knit group encourages everyone involved to add their input and expertise at all times from the design phase through construction completion. Because of this long-standing relationship, all members of the team take a great deal of pride and ownership in the projects we deliver. This results in projects that exceed our client’s expectations.
