Waterfront property on right bank

Stair access to groundwater source

Estuary

Ormes 17

Thursday, September 2, 2010

Issue:

Bassin street follows the river on the right bank. Residential properties on right bank mostly. Small tributary and a spring from right bank end up in the river. Stairs give access to a groundwater spring. Very steep right bank with a nice strip of shrubs in the buffer zone. The river turns into an estuary and is influenced by the high and low tides.

Action Required:

Landowner education on the importance of maintaining an adequate buffer zone on their property. Restore the buffer zone by planting shrubs or by letting nature take its course by leaving a strip of untouched vegetation along the stream.
