Lake Forest Erosion Control
Homes and other private improvements located along an abrupt bend in an unnamed stream were being threatened by the outward migration of the channel. Walter P Moore provided civil engineering services to repair the eroding bank of the stream behind Lake Forest Drive.
Walter P Moore prepared a design that consists of an anchored big-block retaining wall system to armor the eroding area. Rock anchor tiebacks utilize underlying shale at the site for lateral load resistance. Walter P Moore also provided a hydraulic study to insure that the design does not cause a rise in the water surface elevations for multiple design storms.
