Fitzsimmons Watershed Erosion Control
Service & Expertise:
Resort Municipality of Whistler
Water Street was retained by the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) to carry out an options analysis for erosion control of the Fitzsimmons Watershed. The primary objective was to develop engineered or natural erosion control solutions to reduce the quantity and/or frequency of gravel removal that is required in Fitzsimmons Creek.
The work included field reviews, change detection analysis, and an assessment of sediment transport processes within the Fitzsimmons Watershed. Following an options analysis process, three erosion control options were recommended for further consideration by RMOW.
