Historic Missouri Riverbank Stabilization / Erosion Control

Courtesy of our good friend David Derrick, we have some really great pictures available in the photo (or ‘Pics’) section of our website.

All the photos are 1920-30’s era attempts at Riverbank stabilization, using techniques such as Board Mattresses,  Gabion Burrs and Timber Pile Dikes…  

Huh?  You might be saying.  Yeah, me too.  But once you see the pictures, you’ll notice that these techniques aren’t too far off from current day riprap, gabion baskets, brush mattresses, etc.

Check them out here.  They’re quite neat.
