Stream restoration has become increasingly popular, yet efforts to quantify N-removal benefits are only just beginning. The paper proposes a framework for prioritizing restoration sites that involves identifying where potential N loads are large due to sizeable sources and efficient delivery to streams, and when the majority of N is exported. Suggested approaches that increase in-stream carbon availability, contact between the water and benthos, and connections between streams and adjacent terrestrial environments are provided.
