Although a major engine that supported the economy of our nation, our rivers were long abused until the creation of the Clean Water Act. This talk by Tom Ballestero, PhD, of the UNH Department of Civil Engineering Hydrology and Water Resources Engineering Section will describe river systems and how we now restore these systems with ecosystems being a primary driver. In addition, how land use decisions of the past affected our streams and how modern land use decisions try to integrate aquatic systems into the process will be included.
