Streambank Stabilization Using Soil Bioengineering Treatments
When & Where
September 5 at 1-2:30 p.m.
2277 West Ridgewood Drive,
This live webinar by J. Chris Hoag will talk about what type of plants to use, how to plant them, and where to plant them to achieve streambank stabilization.
Streambank stabilization federal and state regulatory agencies are stricter now than ever about requiring vegetation to be a part of any designs that include rock riprap. Streambank soil bioengineering techniques use plants to increase the strength and structure of the soil, and help re-establish the natural vegetation community in the riparian zone. This live webinar will describe what type of plants to use, how to plant them to achieve the highest percentage of establishment, and where to plant them to achieve the highest stability to the streambank. This live webinar will detail how to construct a number of bioengineering treatments and how to install them on the streambank. The information on streambank soil bioengineering will provide the user with guidance on different options for including vegetation in streambank stabilization designs.
- You will be able to identify what soil bioengineering is.
- You will be able to discuss the history of soil bioengineering.
- You will be able to review types of planting stock.
- You will be able to explain differences between wet and dry areas.
