Stream Bank Erosion
Restore and protect your waterways
Stream bank erosion is similar to lake bank erosion, affecting the shape, form and flow of the stream and the stability and strength of the bank lining it. The main difference is the speed at which the current flows through a narrow space, which causes particles of soil to break away from its foundation. During adverse weather conditions, forces of wind, rainfall and rivers cause significant amounts of soil to break away.
If not properly cared for, it can lead to loss of land, unstable environments and maintenance issues for homeowners, commercial managers and golf course owners. They can also cause dangerous situations for any persons on or around eroded river-side land.
The best method for prevention
The best time to prevent stream bank erosion is during the build phase where we sod or plant directly through the knitted mesh to revegetate the bank and shoreline. However, more often than not we find that our services are required when the erosion has already occurred, whether it’s in the early stages, or when significant erosion is present.
Our DredgeSOX and ShoreSOX systems have the innate ability to repair eroding stream banks through its patented, design-friendly technical mesh and anchoring system. Easy to install, they provide almost immediate control of areas under threat and good stability for pedestrians in the area.
