Natural Stream Bank Stabilization

Using boulders, riparian plants (willows, cottonwoods and etc), logs and mulch Big Cottonwood River was stabilized in Holiday, Utah.  Logs were wrapped with bent rebar driven into the ground.  These photos were in taken (2010), approximately two years after installation.  The logs were approximately 4-6 inches in diameter.  At the time of the visit the stabilization looked good and the plant material was green and growing.
