Shoreline Breakwall

Over time, the force of water and ice has eroded the river bank, creating the need to stabilize the shore. Parks Canada, the Essex Region Conservation Authority (ERCA) and Environment Canada partnered to stabilize the shoreline using limestone mined in Amherstburg, and created small islands with submerged spawning reefs. These features provide habitat, and shelter fish and other aquatic life from the current and wake created by passing freighters.

Ouvrages de protection des rives

Avec le temps, la force de l'eau et de la glace a ?rod? la berge de la rivi?re et on a d? stabiliser la rive. Parcs Canada, l'Office de protection de la nature de la r?gion d'Essex et Environnement Canada ont joint leurs efforts pour prot?ger la rive au moyen de blocs de calcaire; ils ont aussi am?nag? quelques ?lots offrant des r?cifs de frai. Ces travaux ont pour objectif de prot?ger les poissons et autres types de vie aquatique des courants et des vagues que cr?ent, en passant, les navires de charge.
