Streambank Stabililization & Fish Habitat Structures

BankErosion-Undercut

This is an example of a potential streambank erosion project that we would undertake. Installing streambank stabilization and instream water flow diversion structures will decrease sediment pollution into the stream

Root-Wad

The stem of a root wad is used to stabilize a streambank and divert water flow away from the bank. The root ball creates habitat for aquatic organisms such as cover for fish.
