Shoreline Erosion & Retaining Walls
Fluctuations in water levels, waves and harsh Ontario winters are just a few of the things that can impact your shoreline and result in erosion. If you are experiencing challenging slopes or erosion on your property, we can help. Kehoe will do a full assessment to determine the best course of action for limiting erosion of your waterfront property.
Retaining walls can look great and are sometimes installed just to improve waterfront esthetics but they can also provide critical shoreline stabilization and prevent erosion. Kehoe will design and install retaining walls, constructed with sheet piling, concrete, rip rap or natural stone.
A site visit is required to determine the appropriate type of material and size to adequately protect the shore from wave and ice action. Regardless of which shoreline erosion measure you select, please be aware that the time needed for approvals can be significant.
