Measure Type
Gray Engineering vs Nature Based Solutions

Details

Re-establish native vegetation at degraded riparian sites to help stabilize streams. Work with relevant agencies and landowners to determine feasibility to implement measure.

Capital Cost

Low – limited materials are required

Operations & Maintenance

Moderate – will require consistent maintenance for vegetation

Effectiveness

High – can significantly reduce flooding by increasing available flood storage

Flexibility

High – areas can be progressively vegetated over time

Barriers to Implementation

Permitting; maintenance approaches/expertise

Equity

Ensure equitable deployment of strategies across a range of equity areas, based on greatest need
