Summary

Summary

  • Hydromodification is a vital issue in the urbanizing West, especially in areas with geologic or geomorphic disturbance.

  • Solutions are often best approached from geologic perspective:

    • Recognizing the one-time nature of channel adjustment

    • Based on intensive field work in disturbed landscapes.

  • Value of baseline data – flow, sediment, channels.

  • Solutions should spring from watershed perspective and work with site conditions.
