Constructed for Michigan DNR in Nashville, Michigan, this project was one of the first toe wood projects constructed in the state. The need for this project was incepted by the removal of a low head dam that was historically an old mill site. The project consisted of 800 LF of in-stream revetments to protect against further erosion caused by the lowering of the water surface elevation with the removal of the dam just downstream. Toe wood installation was the focal point in the outside of the meanders to serve not only as bank protection but to also serve as aquatic habitat and refuge. Several grade control structures were also installed to ensure that future incision would not occur.
