2019-902 Pond Maintenance Project
This project includes creek bank stabilization at Nine Mile Creek near Queen Ave S, and sediment excavation at Ford Pond adjacent to the off-leash dog park at 11000 Nesbitt Ave S.
The creek repairs will use a combination of boulders and soil wraps to repair ongoing erosion that threatens the southerly access to Nine Mile Creek’s Lower Valley. The soil wraps will use natural fiber reinforcement fabric and vegetation above the normal creek flows and natural field stone to stabilize the existing creek bank.
Excavation work at Ford Pond will restore the sediment basin to the original contours, and restore the sediment-capturing water quality benefits. This maintenance work will take advantage of the winter weather conditions and may involve a drawdown of the pond.
Work is expected to begin in late January or early February and be substantially complete by early March 2020. Final restoration is expected to be completed by May, 2020.
