Road erosion

Tributaire Belledune 01

Monday, July 25, 2011

Issue:

Metal culvert (60 cm) that cross forestry road. The top of the road and around the culvert are eroded. Excessive erosion and some woody debris noted in area. Accessibility to trail reduced due to eroding trail.

Action Required:

The stream banks should be stabilized (with rip-rap rocks or with vegetation) in order to slow down erosion and reduce sedimentation in the stream. Restore the buffer zone by planting shrubs or by letting nature take its course by leaving a strip of untouched vegetation along the stream. A ‘‘Erosion protection’’ and/or ‘‘No dumping’’ sign should be erected near the site.
