Steve McKinney at Napa. It is my understanding the EPA is investigating. Hope so. It might help Steve but it will flood everyone else. Who else can fill in the creek???

Is he just doing some creek bank stabilizing on his property? Erosion is a real problem and has to be dealt with if you don't want to loose usable property.

Are you suggesting there is a dam being built? Thats the only way anyone upstream would flood it seems.
After the next big rain report back on the matter.

Plants and rocks are both very effective in stabilizing stream banks. A tiny bit of reseach about it can help property owners keep land instead of it eroding away.

OK - there is a cute little flagstone waterfall somebody created just west of the bridge ,
and that appears to be quite stable for now

but if we get a BIG flood ,....
the entire bridge will be washed away ,...
no amount of silly little plants and a few rocks can hold up against millions of gallons of rushing water -

Education and knowledge of bank stabilization is a helplful thing. Really, just look it up and view the long term outlook for small streams.

I agree vegetation and rocks are very effective. If nothing else someone should grow rice in the flood plaines.
