Description: Technical Report
Abstract: This report focuses on consideration related to the acquisition, handling, and placement of the vegetation for bioengineering treatments and riparian restoration efforts associated with flood control projects. Successful designs are based on consideration of hydraulic impacts and environmental benefits, the anticipated soils and hydrology, and the approach by which the vegetation is obtained, handled, and installed. Selection of species type and their acquisition; guidelines for the design of riparian buffer zones, for handling plant materials, and for development cost estimates; and some supplemental considerations are presented in this report.
