Soil Bioengineering

Soil bioengineering is a restoration technique based on the idea that healthy vegetation can serve as the best, and most flexible, armoring available for stream stabilization. This technique reinforces conventional bank stabilization engineering designs with plants and plant materials (trunks, root wads, etc.). Ultimately, the organic components will provide the natural, long-term bank stability needed to keep a stream channel healthy.
