Stream Restoration

Clean water is vital. In Chester County, Pennsylvania, people are working together to restore the health of their drinking water sources. A red stream is an impaired stream that does not meet water quality standards. A blue stream has a clean bill of health. Watch as Plum Run, part of the Brandywine River Watershed, is transformed from a red stream into a blue stream. Through creating a level floodplain to reduce erosion, planting trees, and removing grass that’s so compacted that it’s practically a parking lot, Plum Run is restored to a much healthier stream.

This project is the result of collaborative efforts by Brandywine Valley Association, the Chester County Conservation District, Clauser Environmental, and local homeowners.
