Eubanks, October U.S. Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Stream Restoration Design. Soil bioengineering techniques to stabilize streambanks and shorelines are as effective, and sometimes more effective, than traditional engineering treatments (Li & Eddleman, ).

Techniques to stabilize streambanks work by either reducing the force of the flowing water, by increasing the resistance of the bank to erosional forces, or by a Cited by: 3.

Soil bioengineering (SB) uses live plant materials to provide erosion control, slope and stream bank stabilization, landscape restoration, and wildlife habitat.

These techniques are used alone or in conjunction with conventional engineering techniques. Soil bioengineering employs a partnership of. Soil bioengineering is the use of living plant materials to provide some engineering function. Soil bioengineering is an effective tool for treatment of a variety of unstable and / or eroding sites.
