Selecting An Ideal Stream Crossing Location

Selecting the location of a stream crossing is just as important as determining the type of crossing to install. When choosing crossing locations, you should look for the following:

  • Narrow stream sections
  • Straight (not in a curve)
  • Flat ground
  • Low flow
  • Stable banks
  • Good access to tract

Think about how you would evaluate the stream on the left for the above listed factors and then think about how you would cross it.
