Abstract : This study reports on economic development and employment effects of non-structural stream (riparian) restoration. Using a regional input-output model known as IMPLAN, detailed descriptions of stream restoration practices, and local and national information on stream restoration expenditures, this study estimates the regional economic development and employment creation effects associated with three restoration projects: Anacostia Creek in Maryland, a highly degraded urban stream and the site of the largest restoration project in the country; the Boulder Creek restoration project in Boulder, Colorado, being tested as an alternative to expensive structural water quality improvements; and Glen Creek in Denali National Park, Alaska, an attempt to restore fragile northern habitats damaged by placer gold mining.
