The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago partnered with our team to complete t flood control and streambank stabilization on Tinley Creek. Approximately 2,600 linear feet of Tinley Creek was improved with three distinct stabilization styles. Area one included extensive widening of the existing creek corridor, creating bankfull benches that were planted with native trees, shrubs, and plantings. This area also benefited from the installation of nine pool and riffle structures. Area two involved resloping of the creek banks and the subsequent armoring of the banks with approximately 2,000 tons of RR-5 Rip Rap. Native trees, shrubs, and seed were also installed on the banks above the rip rap. Area three involved the armoring of the banks with approximately 1,200 linear feet of nine-foot-tall Gabion basket walls, resulting in better overall stabilization for the creek.
