Document Description
The Lower Russian River Bank Stabilization Project at Odd Fellows Recreation Club will stabilize and revegetate five sites, broken into smaller subsidies with distinct prescriptions, along 2115 ft. of the Lower Russian River which has been destabilized due to severe flooding in the recent past. On-going erosion at all sites directly threatens the remaining riparian habitat as well as the primary access road for residents and buried utilities, including a septic system serving the 500 residents in the community. The project will feature a combination of bioengineering techniques to both stabilize eroding streambanks and immediately create a pioneer riparian community that will be able, on its own, to evolve into a stable climax riparian community. Techniques will include grading and rocking with river run gravel, and installation of live siltation willow baffles, live willow brush mattresses, live women willow walls, live woven willow wall terraces, and deep planted live willow clusters. A log and boulder fish habitat structure will also be installed at one site. It is widely recognized that this project will be a valuable demonstration of bioengineering techniques that can be applied elsewhere along the Lower Russian River.
