The City of Durham Water department engaged McAdams to provide stabilization to an exposed sanitary sewer main along an unnamed tributary (UT) to Third Fork Creek. The UT to Third Fork Creek is incised and has migrated to run along the sanitary easement. Therefore, McAdams used natural channel design to restore channel dimension, pattern and profile, and created separation between the stream and sanitary sewer line along approximately 1,400 linear feet of stream.

The project also included bank stabilization along Third Fork Creek, a Federal Emergency management Agency (FEMA)-studied stream. McAdams performed a FEMA No-Rise Analysis and successfully obtained a Floodplain Development Permit from the City of Durham to perform stabilization activities along the compromised sanitary sewer line.
