The proposed Appalachian Corridor H will be built through some of the most rugged terrain in West Virginia. The Corridor H section from Davis to Bismarck passes through the Beaver Creek watershed, located in Tucker County, West Virginia, which has been heavily affected by historic mining, deteriorating the water quality conditions of the Beaver Creek watershed. Due to the construction of Corridor H, some of the streams will be disturbed from their present courses. Hence, stream restoration work for these streams is inevitable. It is important to develop a family of stream geometry curves that relate the bankfull parameters as functions of drainage area to carry out stream restoration works.;Positive results by the use of numerical and hydrologic models used in this study show the accuracy and state of the art advancement of such models and that they can be used to infer bankfull flows without having to rely on gaged data.
