Biostabilization is defined as the use of erosion control materials such as erosion mats, filter fabrics, and/or rocks, combined with native plantings for the purpose of stabilizing upland slopes, stream banks, or lake and ocean shorelines. Many shorelines on Lake Keowee will have charateristics that, according to Duke Energy's Shoreline Management Plan, will require biostabilization for permit approval. Although there are many biostabilization techniques, we usually use enhanced rip rap or more simply termed vegetated rock.
