Enhancing Flood Plains and Sustainability
Eroding river banks typically result in many ecological impacts as well as having negative impacts on man made infrastructure. Our historical practices of settling in and around water are slowly catching up to us as our weather patterns are changing and the rain events, at least in our part of the globe, are becoming more intense. In my job I am continually seeing this conflict and the organization I work for continually searches for a suitable resolutions when these conflicts arise. I wanted to highlight one of the projects completed in 2014. This project stabilized an eroding stream bank, re-established woody vegetation to shade the river in the future, and improved river and flood plain connection.
Take a look at the rough video.
