Aquatic Contracting (AC) was contracted by Metro to construct the River Island South Project in 2015. AC began by harvesting, transporting and staging Large Wood Debris (LWD) timber piles and rootwad logs and preparing the site for construction. Once fully mobilized, AC began the main construction phase by installing all erosion control measures, in-water work areas, conducting fish salvage, establishing access and moving LWD to the appropriate sites. Once this was complete the main phases of the project began including: Grading nearly 800 feet of river bank, constructing turtle habitat, enhancing and restoring the Shoe Island Alcove, constructing several large and numerous small log jams, and constructing and improving all associated access roads. These aspects included the installation of 200 timber piling, excavating and grading nearly 12,000 cubic yards of soil, installing several hundred logs and seeding and stabilizing the entire site. Additionally, AC applied for and obtained all fish salvage permits in-house, conducted all fish salvage efforts, and maintained turbidity curtain, isolation measures, and erosion controls at each of the project sites during construction.
