Environmentally Sensitive Channel- and Bank-Protection Measures

This report presents a description of useful environmentally sensitive channel- and bank-protection measures, design guidelines for their application, and a selection system for determining the most appropriate channel- and bank-protection measure. The techniques are grouped into four major categories, namely (1) river training techniques, (2) bank armor and protection, (3) riparian buffer and river corridor treatments, and (4) slope stabilization. This report will be particularly useful to professionals responsible for design and construction of channel- and bank-protection measures in environmentally sensitive areas.
