To date, bioengineering techniques have been used to stabilize a total of over 15,000 linear feet of riverbank in the Turners Falls Power Pool. These treatments are an environmentally sensitive alternative to conventional armoring (rip-rap) of the riverbank to halt erosion and the resulting sedimentation. Given the size of the Connecticut River, the bank repairs in the Turners Falls Pool need to be strong enough to withstand mean annual flows of approximately 17,000 cfs as well as flood events, boat waves, pool fluctuations, and other natural and anthropogenic sources of stress on the banks. The long-term success of these treatments will stem the loss of prime agricultural lands, reduce sedimentation, improve water quality, provide enhanced wildlife habitat, and protect archaeological resources which may otherwise be lost to erosion. Success of these treatments will also mean that bioengineering bank stabilization techniques are a viable solution for reducing bank erosion in large riverine systems like the Connecticut and are preferable to traditional bank armoring techniques like rip-rap and gabions.
