It is often necessary in areas where development has occurred in the upstream wa-
tershed and full channel flow occurs several times a year. Stream bank protection can be ve-
getative, structural or a combined method where live plant material is incorporated into a
structure (bioengineering). Vegetative protection is least costly and the most compatible with
natural stream characteristics. Additional protection is required when hydrologic conditions
have been greatly altered. Because each reach of channel is unique, measures for stream bank
protection should be installed according to a plan developed for the specific site and wa-
tershed.
