As part of the Environmental and Water Quality Operational Studies Program, three reserviors were selected for investigating the feasibility of establishing vegetation on shorelines subject to varying water levels. Study sites were established at Lake Oahe, South Dakota Lake Texoma, OklahomaTexas and Lake Wallula, OregonWashington. This report synthesizes the results of the revegetation trials at these study sites and pertinent revegetation concepts reported elsewhere. Guidelines for developing vegetation on reservoir shorelines having fluctuating water levels are presented in five parts a planning, b site preparation, c planting, d post-planting operations and maintenance, and e costs. Emphasis is placed on reduced costs, proper planning, procurement of plant materials, appropriate planting times and methods, and special planting techniques for erodible shorelines.
