Runnels at Chafee NWR USFWS

In addition to raising the elevation of the marsh, another restoration technique is to put in runnels (pictured) – shallow, narrow ditches that help drain off impounded water. To help put in runnels, USFWS is working with Save The Bay, a group that has extensive experience putting in runnels in Rhode Island. Credit: Steve Droter.
