Mark Creek Flume Flood Management and Stream Rehabilitation
City of Kimberley (2011-2016)
Aqua-Tex was the primary design consultant on the $7.0 M Mark Creek Flume project. The engineering team included LaCas Consultants (hydrology), Exp Services (geotechnical) and Herold Engineering (structural). This project began in 2011 with the development of a two-phase design to take Mark Creek out of its 400-m long concrete channel and rebuild a naturalized creek through town that would withstand a 200-year flood event. The first phase was constructed in the summer of 2012 and the second phase was completed in January 2016.
