Streambank Stabilization

Hooper Road Ramp Retaining Wall 

Village of Endwell,County of Broome,New York

After the June 2006 flood, the Hooper Road embankments experienced severe undermining and loss of material.   

Shumaker Consulting Engineering & Land Surveying, P.C.(SCE) provided design, survey/mapping, environmental and construction inspection services for this rehabilitation project.

SCE was responsible for designing the stone retaining wall along the Hooper Road ramp and embankments. The total length of the wall was 150 feet.




Jennings Creek Road Restoration and Stream Bank Stabilization 

Town of Lisle, County of Broome, New York

As a result of the June 2006 flood, severe erosion occurred along the Jennings Creek Streambed adjacent to the local road in the Town of Lisle.

This FEMA sponsored project provided the rehabilitation of the roadway and stream embankment.

Shumaker Consulting Engineering & Land Surveying, P.C.(SCE) conducted a field investigation to assess the flood damage site, including heavy loss of embankment soil with encroachment to the Jennings Creek Road and spur; and assess the road’s drainage conditions contributing to the erosion issues.

Preliminary design investigations included a hydrologic/hydraulic analysis of the creek, drainage studies of the road, subsurface exploration and cost estimates.

Remedial actions for this project included creek realignment with placement of heavy rip-rap  to protect the stream bank from future floods, placement of the rock veins along the creek bed, drainage ditches along the roadways, roadway intersection reconfiguration with new pavement and 220 feet of new guide railings.
