Floodplain Paint Branch After Construction
Description: Removal of the berm allows water to use the floodplain, providing wetland habitat, removing sedimentation from the water, and dissipating destructive flood energy.
Floodplain Paint Branch Before Construction
The floodplain of Paint Branch before
construction - The soil is well protected by
sod, but the berm prevents waters from
using the floodplain during storms.
Paint Branch After Construction
Description: This view shows the same stretch of Paint Branch after construction. The stream bank has been stabilized to prevent erosion and sedimentation within the stream and the watershed of the Chesapeake Bay.
Paint Branch Before Construction
Description: This view shows a stretch of Paint Branch before construction. The stream bank is subject to erosion during storm events.
Mitigation Site One Year After Construction
Description: PB-85 mitigation site about a year after construction - Vegetation is beginning to fill in providing a more natural habitat.
Mitigation Site After Construction
Description: PB-85 mitigation site just after construction - Vegetation is still sparse, since it takes time for plantings to mature.
Mitigation Site Before Construction
Description: PB-85 mitigation site before construction - Note the artificial berm in the background, which separated the floodplain from the stream during flood events.
Description: Hearth likely used to prepare food for the occupants of the site.
Description: Overview of the data recovery investigations showing test units scattered across the site.
Description: The extensive use of non-local lithic materials by the occupants at the site illustrates a heavy reliance on an exchange and trade network which potentially extended more than 130 miles north and south of the site.
Selby Bay Fox Creek Point
Description: The Selby Bay/Fox Creek point (which was not found at site 18PR1024), has a broad, lanceolate blade with weak shoulders, a square stem or no stem.

6vStreamRestoration duck family
Description: By creating opportunities for natural wetland features to develop within the floodplain, more animals are attracted to the area.
Description: Stabilization of stream banks reduces bank erosion and instream sedimentation.
Description: Adding gravel material to the stream channel enhances fish habitats. Native trout require a rocky stream bottom for best reproduction.
