Streambank Stabilization

Arlington, Texas

JEA HydroTech was part of the team providing Design-Build services for stabilizing 1,000 feet of an eroded streambank in North Arlington (Tributary WFA-1 to the Trinity River). Methods involved bio-technical stabilization measures and reinforced earth technology. Scope of services included determining the creek’s hydraulic characteristics; backwater and floodplain modeling; attaining required 404 permitting; designing and specifying stabilization processes; and, providing construction oversight responsibilities. Related services involved delineating easement boundaries, attaining necessary topography, and providing records of final construction drawings.

Special requirements from the City of Arlington included protection of an existing sanitary sewer line; establishing a natural channel environment; slope stabilization of the channel embankment; and, restoring the streambank to its original hydraulic model – to the extent possible.
