Maline Greenway: Stabilizing Stream Banks

Before installing three new bike and pedestrian bridges in Bella Fontaine County Park as part of its Maline Greenway project, Great Rivers Greenway had to address erosion issues along Maline Creek and two other waterways within the park. Project engineers and landscape architects took a close look at the problem and developed a solution that utilized a combination of stone and green infrastructure. The improvements will protect the stream banks during storm events and flash flooding and reduce the amount of downstream sediment pollution within the waterways.
