Bank stabilization project on the Brazil Ranch (Pastures of Heaven) that withstood the 1997 flood. River jumped the bank at right but rock and willows were not scoured out. However, the main flow of the river was switched from the right of the photo to out of the picture to the left. Photo by Pat Higgins.

Looking upstream at same point as Photo 1 on Brazil property on the Scott River. Shifting bedload in the center of the photo caused the river to meander away from the bank at the left of the photo. Note that deflectors at left and stabilized bank are intact. Photo by Pat Higgins.

This picture shows the field adjacent to the Scott River on the Brazil Ranch being leveled using heavy equipment. The Scott River caused extensive damage to the field when it jumped its banks in January 1997, although the bank stabilization project remained intact. As the riparian vegetation matures, the flows during flood should have much less erosive force at this site. Photo by Pat Higgins.
