Riparian Vegetation


What’s the Difference?


Kinds and AmoutsofVEGETATION


The Role of Vegetation inRiparian Function

  • Protect banks

  • Stabilize channels

  • Dissipate energy:

    • Slow velocity

      • Drop sediment

        • Stabilize sediment

          • Build floodplain


Build Floodplain:

  • Increase water storage capacity (sponge)

  • Increase recharge

  • Absorb floodwater

  • Prolonged flow


Riparian Vegetation

  • Slow the water down

  • Retain water on the land longer
