We operate out of the Parkland County area, servicing surrounding towns in the Edmonton area. We offer consulting services province wide.
We have completed countless Shoreline restorations over the years and some interesting erosion control challenges. Most of these are along local area lakes, businesses and private waterways. We have consulted with several towns, villages and county's as to reconstruction methods.
These photos represent a variety of projects using everything from fieldstone to quarry rock. All in house designs.
EROSION CONTROL AND RESTORATION
Soil erosion typically is the result of extreme water flow exposure and or poor sub soil structure. This is corrected by reconstruction from the base up. The use of Geo textiles, structural retaining walls, aggregates, boulders and vegetation are the principle building blocks in reconstruction. Often the deterioration will be gradual and periodically there will be a complete collapse. The latter is often more costly and brought forth with a sense of urgency.
Erosion and destabilization is usually brought on by changes in water tables or flows, and or by re-development or changes to the landscape. Sometimes measures are undertaken to control erosion until vegetation can take hold and stabilize the area.
In other cases, complete reconstruction must be undertaken to avoid a collapse. Soil erosion is a natural process and often the solutions are based in natural products. Water must always be given respect and guided to flow where we want it to go. 90% of all water related issues are due to improper grading, property modifications, or poor installations. Erosion issues never resolve themselves and cost more to repair the longer they are ignored.

Any reconstruction involving lakes, streams, and or rivers, requires permit approvals from the Federal and Provincial governments, including those crossing private lands. Failure to receive proper permits and approval can result in a stop work order, high fines, and any restoration costs deemed required by the agency.
Wabamun Lake in Alberta had many property owners dealing with extreme shoreline erosion damage and loss. We reconstructed and reclaimed these properties within the approved permits and provided a boulder shield with geo textiles for further stability and strength. We reconstructed 7 PROPERTIES during the 10 week permit period, totaling over 1000 L /Ft of shoreline and 2800 metric tonnes of material and installation. We had no safety, containment, environmental, municipal or permit issues during the project periods.
