Bank Stabilization benifits your property value and water quality

Many waterfront property owners are experiencing extensive erosion.  This is primarily caused by lack of vegetation, varing lake levels, fast flowing rivers, and the force of waves.

Often landowners rip rap their property without incorporating vegetation into the design.  Vegetation keeps the water cool, preventing algae, filtering upland pollutants and providing fish and wildlife habitat.  Our office can provide design recommendations for shoreline stabilization.  Please don't hesitate to call for a consultation. (208) 263-5310. 

 

A permit is required for any projects below ordinary high water.  This 404 Joint Permit is required and is used by the US Army Corp of Engineers, Idaho Department of Lands, and Idaho Department of Water Resources.  For bank stabilization the US Army Corp of Engineers and Idaho Department of lands will be involved in the permitting process.
