Red Earth Cree Nation Shoreline Reinforcement

Red Earth Cree Nation is proposing a shoreline reinforcement project within the Carrot River 29A Reserve. The project will involve the restoration of the shoreline adjacent to the existing cemetery.  High water levels have caused ongoing erosion on the outside bend of the river.  The work will involve hauling and placement of imported fill to re-establish the river bank.  The river bank will be built out approximately 5.0m.  Once the shoreline is re-established and reshaped, it will have non woven geotextile and approximately 0.5m thick rip rap placed on the shoreline to minimize further erosion.  Any waste generated onsite will be hauled to an offsite landfill by the contractor. Fisheries and Oceans Canada has reviewed and approved the proposed project and provided guidance to ensure all applicable regulations are met.
