Operational Restoration of the Pen Branch Bottomland Hardwoos and Swamp Wetlands-The Research Setting

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Historiexecy the SRS swamp was largely composed of bald cypress and tupelo forest with lesser amounts of hardwoods. Upstream impacts from dam construction have altered the composition of the forest through changes in the flooding regimes. Pumping of hot water in to Pen Branch resulted in destruction of several hundred acres of the native forest. Overflow of the forest redistributed sediment, eroded the channel and deposition of silt. No natural regeneration of hardwoods or cypress were observed following cessation of reactor operations. Research was conducted to test various strategies for reforesting these areas.
