The Freshwater Trust | StreamBank

About The Freshwater Trust

The Freshwater Trust builds and implements the tools and methods that help to improve the health of freshwater ecosystems in the United States.

Challenge

Many landowners simply gave up on the work due to the long, cumbersome process.

Solution

The StreamBank platform is designed to streamline and expedite restoration work by coordinating landowners, project managers, contractors and regulatory bodies within an intuitive web-based system.

From the initial launch, StreamBank-managed projects have realized an average efficiency increase of 80% over the original system. The Freshwater Trust’s success has been widely acknowledged and has driven a rapid increase in adoption of the software.
