Trail and Slope Stabilization in Iroquois Park
April 20, 2011
An EPA water quality demonstration grant provided the funding for a project to reduce erosion and soil loss from the Historic Corbly Trail in Iroquois Park. Storm water causes erosion which threatens the integrity of the Iroquois Park hills and trails.
Techniques have been developed to stabilize eroded slopes and build sustainable trails and preserve these beautiful Iroquois Park features. The Corbly Trail was restored using a combination of above ground and below ground stone features that collect and slow runoff preventing the movement of soil down the hillsides. The drainage improvement techniques will reduce sediment loss from the trail thereby improving stream water quality. Please enjoy this newly rebuilt Corby Trail.
