Whether you have a moderate slope or a steep bank, some form of stabilisation of the soil must take place to prevent erosion by wind or water and increase the absorption of water. I opted for lining the stream edge with large landscaping stones and mixing in irises, daylilies, and even some daffodils. FIGURE 9 To restore the riparian buffer zone in the restoration area, the Red Bank Elementary “Stream Team” planted native trees and shrubs in the SCOURLOK units. The site was designed at a time when the Washington 2. In general, due to high failure rates in these areas, smaller plant material should be utilized to minimize costs. In order to accommodate the development, many trees had to be removed leaving the stream along Cool Creek in need of stabilization. 0000029459 00000 n Shallow water areas, pond shoreline, and lower slopes of the riparian edge should be planted as needed for stabilization purposes. Upper slopes of the riparian edge and higher can be planted for more aesthetic purposes. 0000008713 00000 n Readers must consult other references and resources in order to successfully complete a stream channel project.

Alan Sutkowski Coir Logs, Native Plants, Stabilization, Turf Reinforcement Mat In 2005, a new housing development alongside Cool Creek in Hamilton County, Indiana was being built. Since excavation exposes more soil, the stream banks will need to be stabilized with erosion control matting, in addition to being seeded and planted.This option provides the most ideal technique for creating a stable stream bank, but it requires the most effort and cost. Buy plants direct from the grower with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. In 1994, King County built a bioengineered bank stabilization project on the Middle Green River at the site of John Hamakami’s Strawberry Farm. For bank protection the gabions are constructed in the form of mattresses with the help … Stream bank stabilization refers to the restoration and protection of banks in streams, lakes, and other channels as a result of erosion. Recommend consulting designer for plant material adjustment and implement soil testing.
