Ruisseau Emeric 03

Wednesday, August 25, 2010


Private forestry road with three cements culverts (3 x 60 cm) that are completely obstructed by woody debris and sediments upstream. Because the culverts are blocked, the water overflows on the left bank and washes out over the road (during high water times). Moderate erosion on the road and on the stream banks. 

Action Required:

Completely remove the woody debris obstruction in order to let the water flow through the culverts. Place some gravel on the eroded road.
