What are engineered streams?

Engineered streams are man-made waterways created to mimic the natural flow of a stream. They are designed to address issues surrounding water management, including flood control, erosion control, and water quality improvement. These streams are constructed using a variety of materials such as rocks, boulders, soil, plants, and vegetation to recreate the characteristics of a natural stream. They may be used in urban and suburban areas, where natural streams may have been eliminated or modified due to development or other human activities. Engineered streams help to restore ecological functions and provide habitat for aquatic life.
