The Engineering Project Group plans and implements erosion control and other projects throughout the watersheds of TRCA’s jurisdiction.
EROSION INFRASTRUCTURE MAINTENANCE PROJECTS
Maintaining existing erosion control infrastructure is critical to ensure that the structures continue to provide long-term protection to property and public safety. Maintenance requirements can vary and in some cases minor works to plant more vegetation or replace displaced stone may be all that is required.
Sometimes the condition is too poor for minor works to be effective, so the structures would require major maintenance which may involve replacing a large portion of the existing structure with new material.

EROSION HAZARD MITIGATION PROJECTS
New erosion hazards are constantly developing throughout TRCA’s jurisdiction and remedial or emergency work is often required to provide long-term protection to property and public safety.
The nature and location of the hazard influence the design decision and some of these projects must be planned according to the appropriate Class Environmental Assessment process.

SPECIAL ENGINEERING PROJECTS
TRCA often works in partnership with our local municipalities to implement a variety of specialized engineering projects that have primary objectives not directly related to erosion (new trail development, new bridge construction, and others). However, these projects are often located near watercourses or in other erosion hazard areas which triggers TRCA’s involvement due to our expertise in planning and constructing these types of projects.
