haven't read the entire thread but I did oversee several gabion installations in the 90's while working for a utility. The Corp of Engineers stopped us from installing them in stream beds. Said they trap fingerlings and made us switch to large natural (to the area of restoration) rock. Costs of materials was higher but labor was lower. As far as diverting stream flows, pumping was a last resort due to displacement of sediments. The Corp much preferred diverting the flows to a narrower channel. We utilized cloth and rock for stream diversions.
