River Avenue Condominium Shoreline Restoration Winnipeg, MB
An area along the shoreline of the Assiniboine River was eroding due to water level changes and wave action from boats. The engineer (KGS Group) designed a riprap toe to reinforce the lower shoreline and had originally specified four inches of imported topsoil and sod for the upper section. After the initial design, hydraulic options were considered as alternatives due to limited access.
Bohemian Knotweed is an invasive species that can take over an area, choking out existing vegetation and leading to erosion as the better suited species are displaced. Such was the case in Cordova Alaska, situated on the southeastern end of Prince William Sound. Eradicating the knotweed and establishing desired vegetation quickly was necessary to halt the advance of the destructive knotweed and restore the area.
San Antonio River Authority
The San Antonio River Authority needed to vegetate a section of the Mission Reach Project on the San Antonio River. The project site had previously needed to have invasive species removed and was in an area that was prone to erosion due to concentrated flow: quick and dense desirable vegetation establishment was imperative to combatting both issues
