Bohemian Knotweed is an invasive species that can take over an area, choking out existing vegetation and leading to erosion as the better suited species are displaced. Such was the case in Cordova Alaska, situated on the southeastern end of Prince William Sound. Eradicating the knotweed and establishing desired vegetation quickly was necessary to halt the advance of the destructive knotweed and restore the area.
San Antonio River Authority
The San Antonio River Authority needed to vegetate a section of the Mission Reach Project on the San Antonio River. The project site had previously needed to have invasive species removed and was in an area that was prone to erosion due to concentrated flow: quick and dense desirable vegetation establishment was imperative to combatting both issues
This project for a provincial medium-security jail called for two waste water treatment ponds, with 70,000 m2 (83,719 sy) of slopes and channels to install and protect. The project location had incredibly sandy and erodible soils due to the area being a sand deposit from Lake Agassiz that was created during the last ice age.
Coal Basin Reclamation
The Coal Basin project area is located in the White River National Forest, northwest of Redstone, Colorado. A combination of surface mined areas, haul roads, and refuse piles has augmented sedimentation into the Dutch Creek and receiving watercourses such as Coal Creek and Crystal Creek. The owner of this property had intentions to conduct Land Development activities and therefore needed to restore and vegetate the site.
South Wales, United Kingdom
The local community of Glyncoch located in Pontypridd South Wales had a challenge on their hands. With a limited budget approved by the local council and operating with volunteer labor trying to regenerate the local community the goals of building a center that would really help the surrounding neighborhood seemed out of reach.
