City of Southlake Completes Erosion Project in Southlake Glen Area

The City of Southlake recently completed the Southlake Glen Erosion Improvement Project.

When it comes to safety, the environment, and the community, it is essential to provide preventive maintenance.

The goal of the Southlake Glen Erosion Improvement Project was to protect public infrastructure by stabilizing the bank and providing adequate protection from stream erosion and consequent exposure.

Construction began in the fall of 2022 and was completed in late January 2023.

In efforts to regulate water flow, contractors installed a spillway structure, which helps to control the release of water. A stabilizing wall was installed along the side of the creek bank for extra support, and a pedestrian bridge was also installed to reconnect the trail system in Gateway Lakes Park.

“By taking these preventative measures, we can ensure safety from hazardous runoff, soil erosion, and other environmental impacts that may be caused by an exposed wastewater infrastructure,” Public Works Civil Engineer Bryan Ahumada said.

The Southlake Glen Erosion Improvement Project was a part of the City’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP).
