GRANDVIEW STREAM RESTORATION
GRANDVIEW GOLF COURSE / RED-TAIL LAND CONSERVANCY
FLR was hired as design build contractor to design, permit, and construct a stream bank stabilization project on the White River along the Grandview Golf Course in Anderson, Indiana. The stream bank was located on the outside bend of the White River and was composed of friable sandy soils. Because of the banks location and makeup of the streams bank soils, massive bank erosion and land loss was occurring.

Stream bank stabilization included grading the riverbank to an angle of repose appropriate for the sandy native soils and protecting the bank toe and river’s edge for improved riverbank stability. The toe was protected with rootwads which helped to deter bank erosion and create in-stream habitat for both macroinvertebrates and fish alike. The addition of native shrubs and trees strengthened the riverbank and enhanced the riparian habitat. Removal of invasive species throughout the easement encouraged diversity and increased the quality of habitat. The naturalized area enhanced the river habitat by providing a dense tree cover and trapping sediment and nutrients

A conservation easement was established along the riverbank adjacent to the golf course to protect the bank and floodplain in perpetuity. This particular resource offers an excellent opportunity for public awareness of and education about riparian habitats.

Educational opportunities engaged participants and identified the characteristics of various buffer conditions from grass to woodlands. Participants learned how they affect water quality and how to maintain vegetative buffer strips. Attendees participated in on-site improvements.
