Project Purpose

   The purpose of the project is to stabilize the stream bank of Oak Creek that is adjacent to the Cave Springs campground, while minimizing the impact of the Narrow-headed garter snake. The stream bank of concern is currently made of grouted rock bank armor material with rebar elements and polyethylene tubing for internal drainage. The artificial bank was constructed in 1996 due to serious erosion which threatened the campground access road. The failure of the grouted rock bank design is the reason behind the need for the re-stabilization of the stream bank.
