The goal of this project was to enhance and rehabilitate the habitat value of a man-made farm pond by restoring the natural stream channel and riparian area. The habitat function and suitability provided by the farm pond, a dammed stream channel, were low, containing one stratum of non-native reed canarygrass, and preventing fish passage by a non-passable culvert. Riparian habitat was restored by draining the farm pond, enhancing the stream channel, and adding a fish-passable culvert. Rehabilitation will continue over time as the mitigation area develops into mature, forested riparian habitat.
