Abstract: Accumulation of sediment has and continues to be a major problem facing reservoir managers and stakeholders. Sediment accumulation can be reduced by either preventing sediment from entering the reservoir or by removing it once it has been deposited, typically by dredging and upland disposal. Sediment transported into reservoirs generates from overland runoff and erosion of river beds and banks from upstream watersheds. This Regional Sediment Management Technical Note (RSM-TN) presents results of an analysis of bank stabilization as a means of regional sediment management within the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Kansas City District (NWK), and distills lessons learned from previous bank stabilization project successes and failures.
