RiverRestoration is dedicated to resolving river issues. RiverRestoration provides the creative planning, engineering and technical support required in any successful river project. Our philosophy is that a whole system approach to river projects can meet the multiple needs of ecology, recreation and water users, by creating a higher functioning river system. We identify degradations, uncover site constraints, and find sustainable solutions with multiple benefits.
