Williamson County Schools Stream Restoration

BDY conducted a resource assessment of stream hydrology and habitat on an 80-acre school construction site. Stream permitting issues included consideration for the habitat of the federally endangered Nashville Crayfish (Orconectes shoupi). BDY developed an alternate permitting strategy that allowed construction without a protracted permitting process by constraining construction activity near sensitive habitat. BDY also characterized the hydrology of a sinking stream and developed a restoration plan to restore stream function and habitat for the Nashville Crayfish. Regulatory approval from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS), and Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) was obtained for implementation of restoration plan, which has been implemented and has resulted in colonization of the reach by the Nashville Crayfish.
