FREP Downstream Noon Network – Carpentersville Field Tour
August 8, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Meet at Public Works and drive to the site.
We will tour 4 sites along the shores of the Fox River in downtown Carpentersville where the Village has undertaken projects to reclaim, stabilize, and beautify the riverbank. Working with various partners including Otto Engineering as the landowner, these project provided new river access points, and stabilized very steep eroded banks in a sustainable manner. Upland Design, Ltd. was the designer and will provide remarks on their design approach, Hey and Associates, Inc. managed the permitting, and a grant for a portion of the project was received through the Kane-DuPage Soil and Water Conservation District. The projects were funded and implemented by the Village of Carpentersville.
