Installation of culverts

Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) wishes to install culverts in a sector of the minimal trail network (RMS) of the Pointe-de-l'Est wildlife national reserve, in order to ensure the safety of users of the path. Indeed, an erosion / subsidence problem is observed on the trail in the northern portion of the reserve, for the crossing of the watercourse connecting a small pond to Clark Bay.

The new installations will include the following :

• A bed of clean stone covered with geotextile with a stone parafouille wall on each side of the structure;

• Three culverts 1,050 mm in diameter, each spaced 600 mm apart, inside a sand backfill;

• Reprofiling and raising of the existing path.


Latest update

No significant negative environmental effects are anticipated during the implementation of this project.
