The Keystone Stream Team (KST) was founded in 1999 for the purpose of advancing Natural Stream Channel Design (NSCD) technology in Pennsylvania. Through its diversified membership, consisting of watershed groups, technical consultants, and state and federal agencies, KST has formulated general guidelines for applying this new technology, with the goal of returning Pennsylvania streams and watersheds to a natural, self-sustaining state.
Natural Stream Channel Design is a
new technology that continues to evolve.
The KST constantly
assesses this technology through its committees and workgroups, and
conveys updated information through NSCD
and the KST website. The Keystone Stream Team offers
its knowledge and expertise to anyone involved in stream and watershed
restoration in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
