The overall goal of the Stream Restoration Database
is to develop a scientifically based set of monitoring
and reporting protocols for water quality, ecological
function, and habitat performance of stream restoration
and stabilization projects and develop a national
database to store information on these projects.
The primary purposes are to support improvements in
stream restoration applications, provide consistent
data sets to support regulatory compliance for Total
Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs), National Pollutant Discharge
Elimination System (NPDES) permit compliance, and pollutant
and ecosystem services trading.
