Preventing Erosion

Client: Undisclosed

Location: Enfield, North London

Service: Erosion Control

Project Outline:

With JPR's experience of bank protection they were able to support a section of riverbank at Forty Hall in Enfield.

This erosion control project uses layers of stone and coir matting along with live willow.

A section of riverbank at Forty Hall in Enfield had been eroded when the waterflow was altered due to trees collapsing into the river channel. 

The solution we chose was to: 

- level the existing erosion to create a solid base for the new revetment 

- put in place a silt curtain whilst works were underway to stop debris from the works washing down the river 

- use layers of stone, soil and coir matting to created a graded infill into the eroded section of the bank

- plant live willow cuttings between the levels 

- seed the top layer of matting with grass seed

This erosion control solution has worked well in an area which was difficult to access and where a hard landscaping solution would have looked out of place. 

The revetment can barely be seen a few years on as the vegetation has grown over the area so that it blends in with the rest of the bank.
