Created through a partnership with ReWa, the tool will help locate, identify, and restore failing stream banks along the Reedy River.
When a stream bank is failing or even collapses, the following can occur:
- Excessive sediment: smothers aquatic life habitats
- Damage to wastewater infrastructure: buried pipes can burst leach pollutants into the water
- Property loss and damage: leads to excessive erosion
How can I help?
You can use the Stream Bank Failure Tool on Anecdata.org — a free, online science platform that allows local citizens to participate in scientific research. Download the free Anecdata app, join FoRR’s project, and help identify stream bank failure by submitting your own observations.
