The City of Greenville will begin a stream bank restoration project in Falls Park at the top of the falls on Monday, June 19. From the water, crews will use a machine to place boulders along the stream bank. The purpose of the project is to mitigate erosion and provide a safer, gentler slope between the river and the adjacent sidewalk. Both the Army Corps of Engineers and the South Carolina Department of Health & Environmental Control have approved the project, which is expected to take a week, weather permitting. During the course of the project, a short section of the Swamp Rabbit Trail along the river will be closed periodically; however, a parallel sidewalk will remain open as a signed detour.
