ROCK LAKE STABILIZATION : SOIL BIOENGINEERING RESEARCH PROJECT PHASE 1 - HIGHWAY 60, ROCK LAKE, ALGONQUIN PARK

The purpose of this research project was to investigate the application of soil bioengineering/biotechnical construction techniques for slope stabilization and revegetation. The report reviews the original site conditions, the techniques employed, the problems encountered on site and the results of the project. Results indicate that soil bioengineering is a valuable land stabilization technique under these conditions: 1) where aesthetics or habitat rehabilitation are important factors, 2) where machinery and construction supplies are difficult to obtain and where labour is plentiful, 3) where small failures require quick repair by field crews, and 4) in conjunction with other techniques to increase strength and longevity.
