Why do Lake banks erode?
There are a number of reasons why lake banks erode and that can include fish stocks, wind, poor bank side materials, poor drainage, wildlife activity, livestock, general traffic and so on on.
It’s important that bank side vegetation is not destroyed or removed to a point where there are no longer roots as these roots hold the bank structure together and knit together all of the fine soils, which can easily wash away withouth the roots, leading to eroding of the lake banks.
So if there’s been any damage to vegetation on your lake bank, there may be areas of risk on the bank in need of repair or preventative maintenance, to help the bank structure remains strong and be able to withstand anything else that might weaken it, which could lead to it’s eventual collapse. As with everything, a little preventative care, can avert a much bigger job further down the line.
We offer a range of services to help avoid lake bank erosion, some of the more common erosion solutions include;
- Engineering support, such as Gabion walls, Nicospan and Piling
- Support using geomembranes and revetment materials
