The project involves one encroachment to reinforce approx 100 ft of eroding river bank using iron piles, cables, imported cypress logs, native willow cuttings, and gravel. The bank will be pulled back to a 2:1 slope before reinforcement. Heavy equipment will operate on the north bank and will not disturb the wetted channel.
