Event Description:

The course will focus on streambank stabilization techniques for both restoration and traditional flood control projects. Traditional hard structural-type channel bank stabilization techniques will be discussed (using rock riprap, gabions, articulated concrete blocks) as well as redirective techniques (including bendway weirs, rock vanes, and spur dikes). In addition, the use of bioengineering solutions will be presented. In this course, you will learn the applicability and limitations of the various techniques, and recognize the importance of adequate toe protection. Workshops accompanying the lectures provide practical application experience in streambank stabilization design.
