Farewell Bend State Park

GreenWorks was part of a multi-disciplinary team working for Idaho Power to conduct a site assessment and prepare conceptual alternatives to stabilize bank erosion occurring along a half mile section of the west bank of the Snake River in Farewell Bend Sate Park. The primary goals were to identify causes of erosion and develop concepts that would stabilize the shoreline and control the active erosion of the river bank. Additional sub goals included minimizing impact to cultural features, accommodate park use and integrate and enhance habitat elements to the extent possible. During the construction documentation phase, GreenWorks, working with Inter-fluve, researched and developed an innovative method for establishing planting within the rock revetment bank stabilization design.
