In one of the first natural bank stabilization projects undertaken by the Metropolitan Sewer District, vegetation was used in the place of riprap or gabions.

Project Description

Biohabitats was a key member of a team hired by the Louisville/Jefferson County Metropolitan Sewer District to analyze and restore a 500-foot section of Beargrass Creek near the Lakeview Condominiums. After performing an assessment of the Creek, Biohabitats developed a design concept, prepared final design documents and provided construction oversight.

The project involved stormrain channel restoration, soil bioengineering stabilization, and restoration of two acres of riparian habitat.
