This paper discusses bank conditions found along the Kenai River within the city of Soldotna in Alaska. River banks were inventoried in May 1990 by USDA Soil Conservation Service (SCS) staff from Anchorage and Home, ALaska, and Portland, Oregon. Field methods used had been developed and field tested by the SCS in 1989 (Reckendorf, 1989). The full results of the SCS study along the Soldotna reach are presented in Reckendorf and Saele (1991).
