Gilder Creek Stream Enhancement and Infrastructure Protection Project

Client: Renewable Water Resources (ReWa)
Location: Greenville County, SC



Wildlands was selected by Renewable Water Resources (ReWa) to develop site-specific natural channel design and bioengineering techniques for an urban bank stabilization project. Wildlands’ stream enhancement design included bank grading and stabilization using geolifts and boulder toe structures. This led to 1,400 linear feet of stream stabilization, which provides aesthetic value to the stream for adjacent homeowners and golf course. Wildlands also implemented grade control and channel bed stability to protect sewer infrastructure across the stream. This project included construction within state and federal jurisdictional aquatic resources and necessitated federal and state authorization through Sections 401 and 404 of the Clean Water Act.
