A preliminary study of streambank erosion control was conducted with the major emphasis on an extensive literature survey of known streambank protection methods. In conjunction with a survey, preliminary investigations were conducted to identify the mechanisms that contribute to streambank erosion and to evaluate the effectiveness of the most widely used streambank protection methods. The results of the literature survey and the two preliminary investigations are presented herein. The text of the "Streambank Erosion Control Evaluation and Demonstration Act of 1974" is presented in Appendix A. A list of commercial concerns that market streambank protection products is provided in Appendix B. Appendix C contains a glossary of streambank protection terminology. A detailed bibliograhpy resulting from the literature survey is provided in Appendix D, and a listing of selected bibliogrpahies related to streambank protection are provided in Appendix E. /Author/
