Evaluation study of the stream restoration technique developed by George Palmiter in northwestern Ohio indicates that they may be suitable as a non-structural measure for selected areas experiencing chronic, low-intensity flooding, particularly where larger structural measures are not justified. The techniques are not appropriate for severe flood problems. The report evaluates the Palmiter techniques based on their effectiveness and facility of planning and execution as compared to the objectives and criticisms of traditional channelization techniques hydraulic capacity floating debris and sediment removal, and biological effects. while this evaluation is not based on an assessment of effectiveness over a period of time, including need for maintenance, the results are of interest to those comtemplating the use of the techniques either alone or in combination with other flood damage reduction measures.
