Project Description

Many of New Castle County’s streams are heavily eroded and destabilized because of multiple severe storm events.  New Castle County identified a number of the impacted stream reaches to be restored and/or stabilized.  This project was an approximately 400-foot reach of stream entirely within a landscaped residential property. The final stabilization design was a natural design which incorporated a pseudo-landscaped appearance utilizing specific boulder placement, and a greater density of selected flowering native shrubs and flowering plants. CGC Geoservices was contracted to provide the implementation of the natural design. This work included sediment and erosion controls, excavation and backfilling, placement of boulders and planting of native vegetation.
