Bioengineering, or biotechnical erosion control, brings together biological, ecological, and engineering concepts to produce a living, functioning system to prevent erosion. The Watershed Council encourages the use of bioengineering methods on inland lakes and streams to curb erosion, while preventing property loss, protecting water quality, and enhancing riparian habitat. Jennifer Gelb will discuss the basic principles and design, as well as typical costs associated with standard bioengineering projects. Presented by Jennifer Buchanan-Gelb, Restoration Ecologist, Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council.
