The City of Burlington has hired Aquafor Beech Limited to do a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to study the risk of erosion related to three reaches of Tuck Creek. The study will look at erosion, protect infrastructure and private properties, and enhance the natural heritage along Tuck Creek.
The existing bank is not able to protect the local area from storm overflow and there are many areas of the banks that have eroded.
