Oak Glen Golf Course Stream Restoration:
using thermal modeling for cold water trout stream restoration

Restoration addressed a highly manicured reach of Brown’s Creek located within a public golf course that had become excessively wide and shallow. Monitoring had indicated that anthropogenic changes resulted in a substantial warming of this cold-water fishery.
The completed project enhanced wildlife habitat, reduced in-stream warming, and improved course aesthetics while still meeting the strict playability standards of the golf course. The project involved several EOR staff who contributed to various aspects of the project, including:
- graphic designers for interpretive signage and educational campaigns;
- hydrologists performed temperature modeling (SSTEMP) calculations;
- landscape architects and fluvial geomorphologists worked collaboratively with golf course staff to achieve stream goals while enhancing the play of the course.
