Welcome to the next episode of the ENCAP – Erosion Control Minute. This episode is a follow up to our last streambank stabilzation episode which featured stone toe protection. This episode covers vegetated soil lifts, which are often utilized in conjunction with stone toe protection. Geogrid reinforced soil lifts provide an encapsulated soil layer which is vegetated to give a soft armoring to upper portions of restored streambanks. Get the details on the installation and methods of construction of a vegetated soil lift on this episode of the ENCAP – Erosion Control Minute.
