    Streambank Stabilization EC January California Stormwater BMP Handbook 5 of 10 Construction Limitations Do not place earth dikes in watercourses, as these structures are only suited for intercepting sheet flow, and should not be used to intercept concentrated flow. The ideal location for streambank stabilization depends on several factors. The waterbody should be upstream from the WPDES outfall, have landowner approval, and be located in the same HUC 12 watershed. Sites with greater geographic separation may be subject to a higher trade ratio. Consultation with the local County.

Live fascines are used to protect banks from washout and seepage.

Streambank and shoreline stabilization are tools to correct an existing problem with erosion. Some erosion is a natural part of a stream, shoreline, or lake system, and may not need any restoration other than minimal re-vegetation. 4—STREAMBANK & SHORELINE.

STABILIZATION Introduction Many waterfront developments feature homes, roads and buildings constructed along rivers, streams, and wetlands that are particularly sus ceptible to erosion over time. Due to the potential loss of residences, businesses, and supporting infrastructure, stabilization measures are often.

What is Vegetative Stream Bank Stabilization. Vegetative stream bank stabilization is establishing and maintaining vegetative cover on channel banks, berms, and associated areas.

This helps stabilize the banks, reduce erosion and sedimentation, enhance fish and wildlife habitat, and maintain overall environmental quality. Cover: Pictures display the before and after streambank revegetation conducted on Willow Creek, Alaska at Pioneer Lodge adjacent to the Parks Highway.

Four hundred fifty-feet of riverbank was revegetated with root wads, brush layering, vegetative mat and a native seed mix (notice some species in commercial mix were nonnative). TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report Evaluation and Assessment of Environmentally Sensitive Stream Bank Protection Measures evaluates and assesses existing guidelines for the design, installation, monitoring, and maintenance of environmentally sensitive stream bank stabilization and protection measures, and develops quantitative engineering design.
