City of Greensboro – testing the effectiveness of Habitubes

Project Summary

PE is currently subcontracted with Patrick Barber to test the effectiveness of Habitubes in four streams in the Greensboro area.  Habitubes are used to mimic natural leaf packs and are being tested as a tool for relocating benthic insects (shredders primarily) into recently restored streams.  It is hoped that more testing of this protocol in North Carolina and in the southeast will occur in 2016.
