PCR RESERVOIR BANK STABILIZATION
MUNCIE PARKS DEPARTMENT, PRAIRIE CREEK RESERVOIR
The project consisted of turn-key design-build, permitting, engineering surveys, and general project management services for the repair of an eroded bank located near the public beach area and bath house at Prairie Creek Reservoir.

Approximately 125 tons of sand was being washed into the reservoir yearly due to high volumes of water having a direct impact on the general beach area.

The bank was eroding at a rapid pace due to many factors including the adjacent land use (turf, roadway, parking lot), westerly wave action, and presence of boat docks.

The banks were re-graded and reconstructed using NRCS FOTG specifications. Coir logs were placed adjacent to the bank as a break to wave action and engineered soil lifts were stabilized using coir fabric and native vegetation. These biodegradable materials will help to temporarily protect the bank as the native sedges grow and develop healthy root systems that will ultimately serve as a living, long-term, stabilizing solution.

The project was funded by a grant from the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation, the Muncie Delaware County Community Foundation, and Ball Brothers Foundation with additional funding from the Muncie City Parks Department, and the IDEM Section 319 cost-share program.
