USACE restores nature with nature
The Buffalo District was proud to establish aquatic habitat at three sites along the Buffalo River, adjacent to the following parcels: 1 South Street, 70 Katherine Street, and 301 Ohio Street. These locations originally consisted of harden shoreline that included vertical concrete retaining walls, dilapidated dock structures, and rocky debris subsurface. “When we first started the contractor couldn’t plant because there was so much concrete, debris, and poor substrate that nothing could be planted until the wooden debris was cleared out and new fill was brought in,” said Katie Lewis about the Ohio Street site.
