Ten years after: Stream habitat restoration project in retrospect

Abstract:
The Hotophia Creek rehabilitation project, in northwest Mississippi, is discussed. The stream channel was subjected to channelization ca. 1963 and experienced rapid channel erosion between 1963 and 1985, with annual suspended sediment yield exceeding 1,000 t km -2. Fish and physical aquatic habitat data were collected for the one years prior to construction of a one-km long stream habitat rehabilitation project in 1992. The effects of rehabilitation on habitat and fish communities were found to be positive in both the short and long term.
