You will design and build your own low-tech PBR project this semester!
Slides from Class
Slides and lecture from 2020
This 55 minute lecture is based on the same lecture we give in the 3-day Low-Tech PBR of Riverscapes introduction class. In it, we cover:
- Context for design
- What does a design need to do
- What are key elements of a restoration design
- How do you formulate a design?
- Show some examples of how its done.
Slides from 2019
Design Manual Chapters
Examples of Design & Implementation Reports
Below are good examples of real reports you can base your design and implementation reports for low-tech PBR projects on. These are based on the guidleines we reviewed in class and laid out in the manual (i.e. Chapter 5 and Chapter 6 of design manual):
