Shoreline Stabilization: Work at the Nautical Centre Is Complete

Monday, 18 November, 2019

 

Châteauguay, November 18, 2019 — The Ville de Châteauguay would like to announce that shoreline stabilization work has now been completed at the nautical centre. Through the injection of nearly $200,000, the City has been able to carry out work in recent weeks to protect the site, while revitalizing some of the components.

The work allowed the City to replenish the beach with fine gravel made up of small, round washed rocks. Also, the gabion wall (a cage of braided wire filled with stones), which was in poor condition, was removed and was replaced by angular rockfill.

Some of the improvements made in a pilot project were used to install a boat support that will also act as a breakwater when waters rise. A natural spur, consisting of posts and fir branches, was also installed. This structure, like a wall, will counter the effects of shoreline drift by increasing the likelihood that the fine gravel will remain in place rather than being carried offshore. In the spring, the fine gravel retained by the spur will be brought back and the bank will be levelled. The fir branches will also be removed for the summer period. This procedure will be repeated each year if the pilot project results are conclusive.

The Ville de Châteauguay holds a certificate from the Quebec Department of the Environment and the Fight against Climate Change to be able to carry out this work.
