Daylighting Streams: From pipes and culverts into the open
Designing with Nature
“Daylighting—the practice of restoring a stream that had been routed through a culvert back to its natural state—is becoming a more common stormwater trend throughout the United States.

Wildlife habitat, as well as eye-pleasing green space, is expanded through creek daylighting,” writes Carol Brzozowski in the September 2010 issue of Stormwater Magazine.
