Gabions For Streambank Erosion Control

Streambank erosion is a natural process that occurs in streams. The major factor accounting for streambank erosion is the velocity of the flowing water. Velocity is affected by the stream cross section, stream bed gradient, bank cover, depth of flow and degree of meander.

There are numerous methods of controlling streambank erosion. When a streambank requires protection from high velocity flows, structural methods should be considered. Two structural methods commonly used are riprap revetments and gabion revetments. Structural methods are also used when infrastructure, such as utility lines, roads or buildings, are endangered by the eroding stream. When installing streambank protection, the velocities during everyday flows as well as the velocities during large storm events should be considered in the design process.

We supply gabions for streambank erosion control of various sizes and types. For more information, please contact us.

What are Gabions ?

Gabions are wire mesh boxes, containers or baskets filled with rock to prevent soil erosion and to retain/contain soil particles. They reduce water velocities and re-capture river bed sediment in streams. Flat Gabions, called River or Reno Mattresses are widely used in river courses where soil erosion is a problem over a wide flat area and a large area needs to be protected against soil loss/scour. They are used mostly in the civil engineering industry especially in the construction of roads, however recently due to their environmental benefits are being used in many various applications and industries.

They were even recently used to contain chickens for transportion in the back of a vehicle to the reseller with suprising success !
