JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- Environmentalists say they expect more stream restorations across the state like one just done in Jackson, Tenn.
A small tributary of Cane Creek has been transformed from a channelized stream to an engineered, meandering stream as the inaugural project of the Tennessee Healthy Watershed Initiative.
A news release from the group said several new approaches were used to manage stormwater, improve water quality and enhance wildlife habitat and viewing.
Before restoration, the site had a history of flooding after rainstorms.
The initiative consists of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation; the Nature Conservancy; the Tennessee Valley Authority; and the West Tennessee River Basin Authority.
