Impacted Wards: 7
Contractor: Fischer Grading
A reach of Boschert Creek between Kingshighway and Pine was identified as actively downcutting and widening. The bank erosion is encroaching on residential properties and has exposed a section of sanitary sewer crossings. Several bank sections have been reinforced with gabion baskets or block walls. The project includes construction of in-stream grade controls and two retaining walls, as well as slope grading and protection using native plants and rock.
