Lake Michigan Emergency Bluff Stabilization

Marek Landscaping, LLC was contacted by Milwaukee County Parks to perform emergency bluff stabilization and erosion control for a section of Lake Michigan’s bluff along North Lincoln Memorial Drive. The emergency stabilization measures included a compost blanket and Filtrexx slope interrupters, were in place three days after Marek was contacted, and successfully maintained the stability of the slope during a 2-inch storm event occurring shortly after completion. No runoff sediment was deposited onto the public bike path after the storm. Within less than a week the cover crop germinated further stabilizing the soil until the native plants were able to germinate.
