What We Do
Salt Lake County's integrated planning process provides a framework of goals and policies that are intended to forge water quality stewardship consistent with Congressional goals and representative of the needs of the local population.
Using natural channel design our stream restoration projects stabilize and repair degraded streambanks, while returning streams to a more self-sustaining and stable form. This protects water quality, improves a stream’s capacity to handle floodwaters, and improves habitat for diverse species.
When designed correctly, these projects require less maintenance, blend into and become part of the natural landscape over time, and ultimately reduce overall costs.
