Bean Creek Erosion Mitigation

Citizens Energy Group | Indianapolis, IN

Bean Creek

Located within Garfield Park near the community center, it was important to the neighborhood and city to not only have a safe but also a beautiful solution to Bean Creek's catastrophic erosion.

Burke created a two-dimensional flow model to more adequately analyze the complex flow situation near the undermined sanitary sewer pipe that passed under the creek. This model helped the team design a streambank restoration that would be aesthetically pleasing as well as enhance the natural environment and the viability of the aquatic habitat.

Working within a tight schedule, Burke was able to obtain eight necessary permits for the project with extensive stakeholder and regulatory agency coordination.

Burke's engineers provided:

  • Hydrologic and hydraulic modeling for stream throughout project site
  • Stream stabilization design and erosion prevention measures
  • Environmental and municipal permitting
  • Construction observation
  • Stakeholder and regulatory agency coordination
