Lake brook 04

Friday, July 22, 2011

Issue:

There used to be a wooden bridge at he crossing. The bridge is now collapsed and washed out on the bank and is creating some obstruction. The obstruction and the beaver activities created a pool upstream. Light erosion and some debris noted in area.

Action Required:

Visitors must be educated on importance of maintaining an adequate buffer zone in the region. 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. A ‘‘Erosion protection’’ and/or ‘‘No dumping’’ sign should be erected near the site.
