BLA prepared design alternatives to address bank erosion and scour at the Buckbee Creek Rock River outfall. The creek and project area are in the mapped floodplain. BLA performed hydraulic modeling and developed multiple alternatives to stabilize the channel bottom, reconstruct the streambanks and protect the channel from future scour/erosion. A combination of rock-filled mats, riprap and sheet piling was used to stabilize the granular soils of the outfall. BLA also provided construction engineering services.
