Salix proposed a river enhancement design with the main aim of increasing base flow, reducing low flows and narrowing the channel using vegetated wet berms of varying widths, locally sourced coarse wood deﬂectors and vegetation to be used both marginally and within the channel itself.
Salix were brought in to replace hard engineered concreted scour protection with far more sensitive and effective Rock Bags XL.
