Construction started last year to stabilize a portion of the east bank of the White River in Augusta, Ark.
Bank erosion has been occurring, threatening to wash away Augusta’s historic American Legion Hut, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, a city road, and a portion of the city sewer main.
This work is being done with funds from the Section 14 program, whose purpose is to construct emergency streambank protection to prevent natural erosion processes from damaging roads, sewer lines and historic structures, among other things.
The work is being cost-shared with the City of Augusta.
