This bioengineering manual is a compilation of much of the best-available research and industry knowledge on the subject of streambank bioengineering, and has been developed by a team of geomorphologists, hydraulics engineers, river restoration practitioners, restoration ecologists, and others. Our original goal was to create a useful resource for planners, coalitions, designers and practitioners working on post-flood and other river restoration projects throughout Colorado. We hope we have met this goal, and look forward to enhancing the manual over time in response to your input.
Appendix A of the manual includes a field guide to willow and cottonwood restoration techniques. The revegetation matrix is provided as a link (below), and is also available in a searchable database on the CWCB and EWP websites (see links below).
