Summary

Stream restoration goals include reducing erosion and increasing hyporheic exchange to promote biogeochemical processing and improve water quality. Suspended fine particles (<100 µm) exchange with transient storage areas near and within streambeds and banks. Fine particle deposition and retention directly impact carbon and nutrient cycling by supporting benthic and hyporheic metabolism, but accumulation of fine-particle deposits can impair metabolism by burying benthic biofilms and reducing streambed permeability. Little is known on how fine particle dynamics respond to stream restoration. We analyzed the transport and retention of water and fine particles at both the reach- and local-scale in a restored urban stream, 9 years post [...]
