Palmer conducted geomorphic, geotechnical and water resource engineering assessments to inform the detailed design of naturalized channel stabilization for a stretch of Mimico Creek. The goal of the project was to mitigate the risk of erosion to an existing sanitary sewer pipe and a private property along the stream while maintaining natural fluvial processes and improving local ecological functions.
The final design, developed in collaboration with Perzia Geosolutions, used natural riverstone material and bioengineering techniques to stabilize the creek bed and banks, and a soil containment system to strengthen the valley wall.
