The aim of this research was to utilize the Bank Stability and Toe Erosion Model (BSTEM) in order to determine the importance of seepage undercutting relative to bank shear strength, bank angle, soil pore-water pressure, and root reinforcement. The BSTEM simulated 2 streambanks : Little Topashaw Creek and Goodwin Creek in northern Mississippi. The results depict the baseline conditions at which seepage undercutting of vegetated streambanks needs to be considered for bank stability analyses
