Bio-engineered bank stabilization solutions work with the natural environment to enhance bank stability and habitat. Such systems also create a surface on which plants can take root and grow, further reducing erosion and runoff while improving water quality.

SumCo Eco-Contracting has experience with a wide range of bio-engineering solutions. Engineered designs that we construct create natural erosion-resistant surfaces through integrated mechanical and biological components, including armored stone toes; coir mats; live cuttings, tree root wads and other woody debris; native plantings; and seedings.
