Abstract

Over the last several years the use of vegetative plantings to stabilize highly eroded streambanks has gained in popularity. Reasons for this popularity are relatively low cost when compared to traditional methods of stabilization, as well as secondary benefits of aesthetics, thermal regulation, biodiversity, and the creation of additional fish and wildlife habitats. In 1988 the Soil Conservation Service (SCS) in conjunction with the Illinois River Soil and Water Conservation Task Force (IRSCTF) and the Woodford County Soil and Water Conservation District initiated a field trial to evaluate several methods of vegetative streambank stabilization. This trial was located on Richland Creek, a tributary of the Illinois River in Woodford County. (from Authors)
