CVPS will remove about 90 cubic yards of concrete and 500 cubic yards of soil, and will improve about 200 feet of riverbank. The bank is currently covered with riprap - large rocks that hold the bank in place but are not in keeping with the rest of the bank in that area.
"We plan to replace the riprap with small shrubs and native grasses to create a natural-looking stream bank, with the shrubs and grass serving the same purpose of reducing erosion," Costello said. "We hope to complete the entire project by mid-October."
The project is estimated to cost about $450,000, which CVPS has in a reserve fund for this purpose.
