Project Details: The McGrath EWP 2021 project stabilized the eroding riverbank downstream of the existing riprap revetment. A series of four stream barbs were constructed to stabilize the eroding bank. A riprap revetment extension was also constructed upstream of the existing riprap revetment to prevent flanking of the existing revetment due to continued bank erosion upstream.
