Rebecca Spit has a long, thin piece of land with a single, old road crossing the narrowest part, just past the boat ramp, which was slowly eroding away. We were awarded the BC parks contract to rebuild it according to the engineered design. The design required the beach slope be stabilized with natural materials that would prevent further erosion.
Large >1m rocks were buried at specific elevations with cables threaded through drilled holes. These cables would then anchor large Douglas Fir trees in place at the natural beach elevations giving the appearance of half buried drift wood while firmly holding the beach in place.
Due to the sensitive marine environment, great care was taken to minimize surrounding disturbances and much of the work was performed at night due to tidal considerations.
