Stream Bank Repair Program

Clemson Extension is requesting input for a new Stream Bank Repair program. This program is intended for homeowners, land managers, municipal staff, and landscape professionals. This program will address unhealthy stream banks suffering from erosion and instability that result in adverse effects to water quality. It is important that we better understand what information is lacking on stream bank repair and the best way to offer a program to these audiences. We'd appreciate your input and ask that you share this information with other professionals and homeowners. Please click on the link below for additional information.
