A house too close to the cut bank

RiverSmart Communities' stream table

In October 2021, RiverSmart Communities' stream table visited Fort River Elementary School, to help teach about how rivers work. In this video of the stream tableĀ from the view at the water level, we see a natural environment complete with sticks, beavers, and a meandering channel coexisting with houses, roads and bridges. The river naturally undercuts the tall bank (cut bank) on the left side as it meanders. What will happen to the houses built so close to the cliff?
