Water Resources | Streambank Stabilization
Thornblade Golf Club contracted SeamonWhiteside to assess a stream bank improvement project along a section of Brushy Creek that intersects the golf course. The bank improvement project involved grading the left bank (looking downstream) at a 3:1 slope to tie into the existing grade, except for areas where there is existing stormwater infrastructure or trees present. A small section of the right bank was graded at approximately 2.5:1 slope to tie into the existing grade. The project entailed stabilizing a total of approximately 1,539 linear feet of stream banks. The primary bank stabilization design consisted of sloping banks, rock toe, riprap, soil lifts, and Flexamat concrete matting.
Thornblade Golf Course is located in Greer, South Carolina.
