Riverbank Restoration

As part of a development, for erosion control or simply for landscaping or aesthetic reasons, it is sometimes necessary to restore a riverbank. Water Environment can provide the design, advice and all necessary consents to reinstate a natural channel.

We have extensive experience of restoration of, and installation of new, river channels. Sensitive and careful design can not only provide a robust bank, capable of withstanding flood events, but planting can also provide biodiversity and ecology benefits which can contribute to positive achievement of the WFD. In addition, restoration of rivers, particular urbanised rivers with concrete channels, can provide amenity benefits and prove a real asset to your development.
