Streambank Restoration and Protection

Streambank stabilization Willow Springs

At Giant Development, site developers come to us because they know we provide comprehensive contracting services for land development in Willow Springs. With a focus on service and quality, we do everything possible to keep projects on schedule and within budget. 

Many of our land development projects include  excavation, land clearing, and demolition to ensure there is an open, level, stable area for building. However, this process can disrupt the area and, without proper care, affect nearby bodies of water due to significant soil erosion. 

Large construction and site development projects can cause runoff and pollution into the waterways as well as cause soil depletion.  Even when a project hasn’t impacted the waterway, the waterway can impact the land. Over time, running water from a river or stream can cause natural erosion, especially during floods which can lead to structural problems later on. 

Understanding Streambank Stabilization and Restoration

Streambank stabilization and restoration prevent or stop erosion from causing damage. Giant Development works with professionals and engineers who understand how to rebuild and stabilize streambanks to prevent issues.  

In some cases, we are able to use natural plants, greenery, and grasses to anchor the soil and hold it in place. In other situations, we are able to construct barriers that stop erosion or can create bioengineering systems to slow the process. 

These solutions keep soil in place and reduce the risk of flooding, which is better for the environment and prevents property loss and damage.
