Plympton-Wyoming working on shoreline erosion problem at Lamrecton

165

Work is underway to stop the erosion of the banks at Plympton-Wyoming’s Lamrecton Park.

The “significant” erosion was first seen in June 2020.

At the time, neighbours in the area were completing some erosion control measures, however the town wasn’t able to do the work at Lamrecton at the same time.

Council reviewed a number of options and decided this fall a double layer of armour stone should be installed along the waterfront.

Marine Construction won the contract for the work. It’s expected to cost $512,000. That’s almost $20,000 more than council anticipated. That will be covered by reserves. 

It’s hoped the work will be completed before the May 2022 long weekend.
