Title: Streambank erosion inventory Volume II
Author: Antoszek, John; Butler, Karl; Kashef, Owrang; Meek, Sonya
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to assemble a streambank erosion inventory for watercourses in the northern section of the Lake Simcoe watershed. These watercourses included the Talbot River on the east shore of Lake Simcoe, and on the west; Bluffs Creek, Hawkestone Creek, Allingham Creek, Burts Creek, an unnamed creek that flows into the lake at Oro Beach and their tributaries. This inventory is a catalogue of the locations, type, extent, and severity of all the erosion problem sites discovered. Remedial measures to alleviate the erosion problem are suggested following each site description. A total of 123 streambank erosion problem sites on 14 streams or tributaries were identified. Nearly 70 percent of the problems were of the natural streambank erosion type. Eleven sites were identified as having major erosion problems; only one site was found to have an extremely severe erosion problem. The main stream of the Talbot River claimed the most major problem sites with 6 and it also had the single severe problem site. Since the costs for remedial measures for the individual problem sites are highly site-specific, a range of costs has been determined. It is estimated that the costs of remedial measures for the extensive, major and severe erosion problem sites in the entire study area would be between $180,000 and $300,000.
