APRIL, 2019 PIONEER PARK NEWS:
You might have noticed armour stone, heavy equipment, and construction workers busy on the Pier Beach south of the Bayfield pier).
Pioneer Park is currently undertaking a bank revetment project below the park on the north west section of our bank. This is a joint venture with the Municipality of Bluewater(Bayfield Terrace) and the Webb Family, in an effort to stabilize our section of the bank.
Vandriel Excavating Inc., from Clinton, Ontario., was awarded the contract for this project. The project involves the placement of armour stone at the toe of the bank to increase shoreline protection. Behind the newly installed armour stone, on the east side, clear stone backfill will be placed to the height of the armour stone. The placement of an approved, graded backfill with then take place. The goal is to achieve a 2.5 to 1 slope which will stabilize the bank slope from further erosion. The final phase of the project involve applying hydromulch that will adhere to the bank surface providing vegetation which will further reduce and prevent erosion.
The project is progressing on schedule and is slated to be completed by the 15th of May, 2019.
