Bulldozing up to the river bank

Peters 13

Friday, July 9, 2010

Issue:

Big access road with a clearing that has been bulldozed up to the river. A load of dirt has been dumped in the clearing. Lots of sediments flowing into the river. Stream banks eroded. The stream bed is composed primarily of sand and silt that came from the stream banks and the clearing. Some woody debris obstruction in the river channel.

Action Required:

The stream banks should be stabilized (with rip-rap rocks or with vegetation) in order to slow down erosion and reduce sedimentation in the river.
