  EROSION CONTROL | Bartram Park and Darby Creek Stream Restoration Project
Darby Creek was navigable up to Darby in the 19th century, but urbanization in the watershed has reduced the average stream depths dramatically.
The Bartram Park/Darby Creek Stream Restoration Project was a joint project of the Delaware County Conservation District, the Delaware Riverkeeper Network, the Darby Creek Valley Association, and Darby Borough.
In addition to the in-stream components of the project, restoration of a natural floodplain in the adjacent area was another critical component.

The mid-reaches of the stream are surrounded by grasses and shrubs, and the lower reaches of the stream are surrounded by a gallery forest.
Other factors that may affect the dispersion of stream invertebrates are patterns of stream flow and water temperature.

Stream stage (also called stage or gage height) is the height of the water surface, in feet, above an established datum plane where the stage is zero.
The stream-measurement procedure is to go across the stream at selected intervals and measure the total depth and the velocity of the water at selected depths at each interval across the stream.
In the diagram, water depth/velocity measurements are obtained horizontally across the stream at 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 feet (the vertical lines in the diagram).
