Storm erosion is occurring along the banks of the South River in Waynesboro because of excess storm water runoff.
Saturday, the city of Waynesboro and some volunteer Boy scouts, are working to restore parts of the south river bank.
With the help of a grant from the Department of Conservation and Recreation, the city and the boys of Troop 73 are helping stabilize the riverbanks.
Bert Smith is the Program Manager. He says the grant is providing benefits to the river and animals. "We can plant some trees and shrubs out here and do a type of a repairing buffer and also get a little wildlife here and things like that."
The Waynesboro Stormwater Program began in January, and Smith hopes they will continue to help restore the river and other surrounding bodies of water.
