Document Description
The project involves stabilizing five eroding sites along a single stretch of stream. Site #2-1 is an eroded streambank approximately 150' long by 20' tall adjacent to Freestone-Valley Ford Road. A biotechnical repair and bank layback will be designed staying above the active channel where known freshwater shrimp and steelhead habitat are present. The site will be repaired using two woven willow walls at the base of the bank to create terraces for planting. The top of bank will be laid back at a 2.5:1 slope and planted with native trees and shrubs. Approximately 850 feet of fencing will be installed along the entire riparian corridor to restrict livestock access to the stream channel. Site #2-2 is an eroded streambank approximately 75' long by 20' tall and is downstream from site #2-1. The erosion mechanisms are likely caused by high flow and toe scour along with bank seeps. A biotechnical repair is planned for this site above the active channel to avoid freshwater shrimp and steelhead habitat. The bank will be repaired using a woven willow wall along the lower bank and live fascines will be installed up through the mid bank. The landowner has requested a design without equipment excavation at this location.
