Petite rivière aux Ormes

Old wooden bridge downstream

Access trail

ATV crossing

PR Ormes 06

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

Issue:

Camp on very steep right bank with an access trail on the right that crosses the stream. There used to be a wooden bridge at the crossing. The bridge is now collapsed and washed out on the right bank and is creating some obstruction. Two other camps on left bank far from the stream. One of them has an old stair access to the river. Some plastic and metal debris from the camps.

Action Required:

The old collapsed bridge should be removed before it creates too much obstruction. The approach to a ford can be stabilized using clean crushed rock on top of a geotextile.
