Large land development projects often require intensive excavation, site grading, and land clearing in order to create a level, even surface that’s ideal for building. When these are done near rivers, lakes, or other bodies of water, these actions can lead to increased erosion, which can cause long-term damage both to the property and the eco-system. Additionally, natural erosion of banks and beaches can lead to water encroaching on developed land and leading to a loss of both aquatic life and damage to public and private property.

Understanding Streambank Stabilization and Restoration

To prevent erosion or stop its spread, Giant Development, Inc. offers streambank stabilization and restoration. This means we repair streambanks that have been damaged or worn away due to erosion and have unstable soil. Solutions to stabilizing the banks range from planting native plant materials, building natural or man-made barriers, or bioengineering systems to slow the effects of erosion. These solutions prevent soil from washing away, which is better for the environment and prevents property loss and damage.
