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
