Higgins & McDonald Creek Stabilization

Mount Prospect, Illinois

The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago was in need of bank stabilization along three sections of McDonald Creek and two sections of Higgins Creek. V3 was responsible for tree and debris removal, bank reshaping, installation of gabion baskets and streambank stabilization. Limited site access made this project challenging, and the control and management of the creek flow was critical to the proper installation of the improvements. A detailed in-stream work plan was developed and submitted for permitting and approval.
