Abstract:

Streambank stabilization affects many of the structural characteristics and functions of a stream. The basic purpose of any stabilization project is to interrupt erosion processes where they are deemed to conflict with social needs or ecological requirements. These efforts also interrupt or affect other processes and alter the physical environment. Because of the strong interrelations among the structural components and functions of a streamriparian system, a number of secondary and tertiary impacts are associated with bank stabilization measures.
