Duck Creek Erosion Control Phase III


The city of Richardson’s Duck Creek Park is a key element in the city drainage system. Our project involved erosion remediation of six concrete weirs, creation of two ponds, establishment of five duck habitat areas, and revision of  the existing, dated FEMA hydraulic model. We combined our erosion control expertise with our hydrology and hydraulic capabilities, and brought in a landscape architect to provide the duck habitat design. In addition to our strong focus on aesthetics and performance, we led a public outreach forum which generated widespread support from the citizens and the city staff.
