2013 Dutch Brook Restoration Project Cape Breton Howie Centre, NS 46.06026 -60.25437 The Dutch Brook Restoration Project involved the instillation of four digger logs and three pairs of deflectors. Deflectors keep the water from eroding the stream bank on the digging side of the log, while also promoting pool and thalweg development. Two debris blockages were also removed from the stream. These restoration techniques were aimed to consolidate braids into a single channel, promote the formation of meanders, improve the quality and depth of pool habitat, and enhance the thalweg. 3055
