Bank Erosion

Bank erosion can be caused by :

  • Loose soil being washed away when the river is in spate.
  • Cattle or sheep coming down to the river to drink – usually at the same place every time.
  • Unstable banks due to lack of bank-side vegetation and/or trees.

There are several ways to protect vulnerable areas:

  • Plant trees along the bank sides and encourage the growth of vegetation.
  • Fence off areas of livestock erosion, repair the bank and encourage new growth of vegetation.
  • Protect vulnerable areas of loose soil using groynes.
