Visitors to Hardisty Creek just south of Hinton can now learn about geotextile reinforced soil (GRS) arches, the institute’s Foothills Stream Crossing Program, and what goes on within a creek, thanks to new interpretive signage.
On September 22nd, 2009 the Grade 8 French Immersion class from Harry Collinge High School, Hinton, AB, helped FRI researchers to plant willow wands along the banks of Hardisty Creek and Robb Road at the site of a new geo-textile arch stream crossing.
A culvert on Hardisty Creek located along Robb Road 6.6 km south of Hinton was identified as a barrier to fish passage.
In the August issue of eNotes we told you about replacing a culvert with a new system called geotextile reinforced soil (GRS) arch to re-establish fish passage on Hardisty Creek, located along Robb Road 6.6 km south of Hinton.
