Embankment Repairs to your Erie Canal shoreline.

The NYDEC sent me this document regarding what to do with eroding shorelines. It would appear that building walls and vertical structures is not the best route to go.
 
Natural stabilizers like trees, cattails (maybe?) and ground covering plants seem to be the way forward.

Of course, trees on an impounding earthen embankment DAM are taboo, but we are not referring to DAMS here.
