2017 Township Road 451 Stream Bank Stabilization-Washington Township (Holmes County)
In 2016, Washington Township in Holmes County received a Partners in Watershed Management grant for the design and engineering of a bank stabilization project along the Mohican River and Township Road 451. The proposed project requests financial assistance for the construction of the recommended stabilization solution: the installation of an articulating concrete block revetment anchored together with steel cables and conforming to the shape of the slope. The project will also include curbing along Township Road 451 to prevent roadway run-off from eroding channels in the streambank.
The project will stabilize a severely eroded bank of the Mohican River, which will protect the township road and improve public health and safety. By reducing erosion and sedimentation, this project will positively affect the water quality of the Mohican River.
