Project- Wilderness Center Stream Mitigation- Case Study
ERC was hired by the Akron-Canton Airport to install a meandering stream adjacent to an existing stream. Once we excavated and shaped the new meandering stream the soil from the excavation was used to fill in the existing stream after we tied them together. We installed various in stream structures; rock vanes, step pools, log sills, log vanes, root wads and j-hooks. We seeded and used erosion control blanket and jute matting to stabilize the banks. After seeding we planted various trees, shrubs, bare roots and live stakes throughout the stream corridor and in the adjacent floodplain.
