    Description

    The failure of a 22-foot-diameter pipe caused an estimated water flow of 40,000 cfs for approximately one hour, which scoured and removed 1.75 million cubic yards of soil and vegetation from Lost Canyon. Mitigation for the damage caused by the pipe failure included reestablishing the lost vegetation. This paper describes the process of reestablishment including the riparian component. Cooperative planning; perseverance in plant acquisition; use of local sources of plants; use of a qualified contractor; and applying ecological principles in planting techniques and maintenance practices contributed to successful re-establishment.
