Installation of best management practices (BMPs) in watersheds or streams is widely used as a means of reducing, eliminating, or controlling the input of human-based physical, chemical, or hydrologic stressors to those systems. Although BMPs may be effective in managing a particular stressor, installation of stream bank and channel restoration alone may not fully restore nor fully protect the biological condition of the receiving waterbody since multiple stressors are known to affect aquatic biota. The National Risk Management Research Laboratory (NRMRL), part of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (U.S. EPA) Office of Research and Development (ORD) evaluated the effectiveness of stream bank and channel restoration as a means of improving in-stream water quality and biological habitat in Accotink Creek, Fairfax City, Virginia using discrete sampling and continuous monitoring techniques before and after stream restoration.
