ENCAP Erosion Control Minute – Temporary Stream Crossings

The next episode of the ENCAP Erosion Control Minute will feature a critical practice when working around streams and waterways. A well constructed and planned temporary stream crossing can be the difference between a project done on time and in compliance versus one that is inefficient and in violation of NPDES and US Army Corps Permits. This particular example practice needed a little maintenance after a flash flood in western cook county, but a well designed and installed crossing will still have it’s component parts in place following a major flood.
