As long as anyone can remember, managing Warm Springs Run through the school system’s property in Berkeley Springs has been a challenge. Natural Stream Restoration offers the best opportunity to control the run, protect school property, improve aquatic habitat, and reduce nutrient and sediment pollution. Segments are:
- Widmyer Elementary School. ~1,300 linear feet classified as a Rosgen C4 stream-type. It is not overly confined by structures (but does include a buried instream sewer)
- Berkeley Springs High School. ~800 linear feet classified as a Rosgen G4 stream-type with three pedestrian bridges. It is <50 feet from the school building, outbuildings, a sidewalk, and a fence line. The instream sewer is exposed.
