Installation of culverts

Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) wishes to install culverts in a sector of the minimal trail network (RMS) of the Pointe-de-l'Est wildlife national reserve, in order to ensure the safety of users of the path. Indeed, an erosion / subsidence problem is observed on the trail in the northern portion of the reserve, for the crossing of the watercourse connecting a small pond to Clark Bay.

The new installations will include the following :

• A bed of clean stone covered with geotextile with a stone parafouille wall on each side of the structure;

• Three culverts 1,050 mm in diameter, each spaced 600 mm apart, inside a sand backfill;

• Reprofiling and raising of the existing path.



This map is for illustrative purposes. The markers represent the approximate locations based on available data. More than one marker may be identified for a given assessment.
