Stream Restoration

Stream restoration is a highly specialized and delicate task that requires expertise. It is typically done on properties with a stream or river with an eroding bank caused by flooding or natural soil erosion. When not addressed immediately, such issue can be catastrophic and highly unhealthy for the habitat close to the riverbank or stream.

Benefits of Stream Restoration

Over time, the slope close to a stream or river tends to degrade or erode as a result of flooding, earthquake, and other natural occurrence. In this case, the bank can be very unstable and could be totally wiped out or eroded, posing great risks to properties and other living organisms close to it. In this case, a stream restoration is advised to prevent further damages to the bank and the immediate habitat.

Among others, stream restoration effectively prevents further soil erosion. This is particularly helpful if the eroded bank is already very close to your property or to certain structures. The process also helps create a more favorable environment for plants, fish, and wildlife, if any. When done properly, the process can guarantee unhampered water flow without requiring any more troubleshooting efforts. Lastly, a completely restored stream can actually push your property’s market value, since some buyers consider a properly restored stream bank to be an asset.

Our Stream Restoration Process

Now, if your property has a creek or a nearby stream that poses risk to your home or property, we strongly advise you to call us. We have several great solutions that could address any safety hazard brought by erosion. Among our stream restoration solutions are:

Stream Restoration
  • Riprapping. This involves the installation of stones or rubbles to line the bank of the stream, creek, or river. Some ripraps are just carefully arranged and piled up while others may involve pouring concrete in-between the spaces of the riprap material for optimum stability.

  • Tree planting. A good old way of restoring the integrity of banks is by planting trees along their length. While this could take a while, eventually, the roots of mature trees could greatly enhance the compactness of the soil and reduce the likelihood of erosion.

  • Log jamming. This is a fairly new technique that is slowly gaining popularity among stream restorers. It works in much the same way as riprapping, only that in this case, log jams are used. The logs are carefully positioned along the bank to act as a buffer zone and to prevent soil from eroding.

  • Stormwater management. This technique involves several facilities such as infiltration and retention basins. Its purpose is to ensure that the flow of water is reduced or regulated before it gets to the stream, hence lowering the possibility of soil erosion.
