Aldrich Park Stream Restoration
Background: Project Description: Aldrich Park Stream Restoration Project will assist UCI Department of Environmental Planning and Sustainability in implementing the Stormwater Management Plan for UCI. Prior to UCI’s construction, a stream ran through Aldrich Park and was put into a pipe underground with the creation of the park. The purpose of the project is to re-naturalize the stream as an amenity of the park. Not only will the stream be a part of the Riparian habitat but will also serve as water quality control for urban runoff collected from parts of university Hills and campus.
