When hurricanes or Florida storms cause a large amount of rain to fall in a relatively short amount of time, many rivers and streams cannot accommodate the excess flow. This often results in the stream current being displaced--causing damage to the stream banks. Trees and other vegetation may collapse into the base of the stream, interfering with the natural currents. This can cause additional flooding and further damage along the banks. TSI has expert experience in stream restoration and relocation to assist in the natural flow of the stream. Our personnel work closely with engineers to formulate action plans prior to beginning any stream restoration project in order to identify concerns and eliminate the possibility of dangerous and time-consuming issues.
More often than not, it becomes necessary to assist streams in handling the increased flow by rerouting the pattern or slowing the current to prevent bank erosion. TSI has reworked streams to slow or redirect damaging currents without interrupting the volume of the streams, allowing them to handle to the additional loads.
