Buck Creek Stream Restoration

At the confluence of the White River and Buck Creek in Yorktown, IN, FLR has been reconstructing, and redirecting the channel of Buck Creek. After thorough analysis from the design build company's stream restoration engineer, the high quantity of sediment being deposited in the stream bed was due to erosion of the channel itself.

To solve this problem and prevent continued erosion, FLR used engineered techniques to  reduce sedimentation, in-turn improving the water quality, and health of the stream.

In the images below you can see coir mats and rolls being staked in place, reintroduction native riparian ground vegetation, live willow and dogwood staking, and annual rye cover crop seeding to hold soil in place until root structure develops.
