Title: Understanding riverbank erosion from a conservation perspective
Author: National Rivers Authority Northumbria & Yorkshire Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Authority has a statutory duty to further and enhance conservation in all its functions with respect to the water environment (Flood Defence, Water Quality, Water Resources and Fisheries) and to encourage others to do the same. The purpose of this document is to encourage landowners and managers to contribute to this process by creating habitats for wildlife as one method of combatting erosion. Riverbank erosion cannot be prevented completely, but this booklet will help to explain why it occurs, and provide guidelines on environmentally friendly and cost effective ways of coping with the problem - where it is easible.
