LOGJAM REMOVAL & BANK STABILIZATION
BURLINGTON ROAD / WHITE RIVER
FLR was hired by Delaware County Indiana to permit, design, and oversee construction of a log jam removal along the main stem of the West fork of the White River upstream of Muncie, IN. FLR was tasked with early coordination/communications and permitting with the Army Corps of Engineers, IDEM, US Fish and Wildlife, and IDNR. Once permits were obtained, FLR prepared bid documents, assisted in contractor selection, acted as a liaison, and preformed inspections for the logjam removal.

Compounded by the 2005 ice storm, the logjam was 300 feet long and varied 40 to 60 feet in width, approximately 1 acre in size. The obstruction forced the river to cut a new channel 15ft into an adjacent farm field on the east side of the river. Each subsequent storm, caused more bank erosion and land loss as a result of the 2 mile backwater.

Phase 1 of the project included the log jam removal. This phase required extreme care to protect the fresh water clam population located downstream of the project. Other wildlife concerns included potential roosting of Indiana Bats. Phase 2 of the project included the stabilization and restoration of the eroded stream banks and riparian floodplain.

The restoration design included the use of root-wads, vegetated geolifts, and tree installation to ensure lasting stream bank stability. Roots wads were utilized to armor and re-established the toe of slope. Lateral Logs placed over the rootwads provided further protection, while the vegetated geolifts restored the eroded area to the proper height and slope.
