Cates Park Foreshore Erosion Protection Project

The District of North Vancouver proposes to protect the shoreline at Cates Park from further erosion by depositing sand and gravel on the intertidal foreshore. The materials would replace the previously imported materials which have been lost to erosion from wave action and would protect the upland shoreline and headland from further erosion. The sand and gravel would be brought to the site by truck and placed on the shoreline, from upland areas, using slinger trucks. Materials would be placed at Roche Point and at the sandy beach area located approximately 60 metres west of Roche Point.
