Effect of revegetation
treatments on seepage area, seepage volume, and streamflow expressed as a percentage of the values of the parameters for the native vegetation as it was in the 1991 Landsat TM image (the base case)
"They really get out into the back country and work hard, building bridges or constructing miles of trails - it's absolutely amazing what these young people can do." Projects include revegetation
and site restoration, fisheries and stream restoration, and wildlife habitat improvement.
Oil's continued presence further bogs down revegetation
. "A lot of these streams had really soft sediment, so they [soaked] up a lot of oil," says Garrity.
The cleanup project is scheduled to begin July 15 and continue through the summer with revegetation
scheduled to begin in September.
Over the next three years, the Marlin mine will continue reclamation and revegetation
activities, followed by planned ongoing monitoring and maintenance activities.
Therefore, installation of a photovoltaic plant has a significant negative impact on vegetation and soil, and these effects can be reduced by revegetation
of the affected area.
The agency is requiring the revegetation
of approximately 2,000 acres of Blue Mountain.
A project to investigate the outcome of large government investments in community-based rainforest revegetation
has found that only about half the area reported as revegetated was actually forested after six to 11 years.
Schor, the originator of the landforming and revegetation
concept, and Gray (civil and environmental engineering, emeritus, University Michigan) explain the technique of landforming and outline its advantages.
According to George Fekaris, project manager for FHWA's Western Federal Lands Highway Division (WFLHD), "Our clients, the Federal land management agencies, need and want [roadside revegetation
with native plants], and it's the right thing to do, both economically and environmentally."
Typical projects will include design/build solutions for dams, tailings basin, waste piles, open pits, demolition, revegetation
and other mining related infrastructures.
