Tuck Creek Streambank Rehabilitation

The development of an industrial building in 2001 required the re-alignment of Tuck Creek just south of Harvester Road in Burlington. Careful analysis of existing vegetation informed the re-planting of the creek using live stakes for stabilization of the banks, small stock for naturalization, and native seed mixes for cover of the soil.

Bioengineering using live stakes, combined with erosion control fabrics were used in stabilizing the re-constructed banks of the creek. Native vegetation was specified for the re-establishment of the upper, middle and lower vegetation canopies. Monitoring of the vegetation was completed over a period of 5 years.
