The goal of this project was to stabilize the slope below Rose Park Crescent to provide long-term protection to residential dwellings located at the top of slope from the continued hazards of uncontrolled erosion and slope instability. The scope of work included the following:

  • Installation of a subdrainage system to manage groundwater
  • Construction of a vegetated rubble-fill buttress to remediate the slope failure area and stabilize the slope
  • Restoration activities including seeding and planting disturbed areas with native species (grasses, shrubs, trees, etc.)
