Groff Mill Creek, Flood Control Management
Located along Coronation Boulevard in Cambridge, this project was based on the outcome of a watershed master plan study commissioned by the City of Cambridge. The strategy included an earthen flood control berm in Dumfries Conservation Area, upgrading of the culvert crossing Coronation Boulevard and re-design of the channel crossing through the Galt Country Club. Seferian Design Group was involved in all three portions of the flood control strategy to aid in the preparation of various reports as well as preparing detailed planting plans, tree inventories and tree protection plans.
For the realignment of the creek through the golf course, the maintenance needs of the golf course had to be taken into account while ensuring that all planting was native. Working closely with the golf course architect and the golf course superintendent, planting was selected that helped to stabilize the banks while enhancing the aesthetic of the corridor and maintaining sight lines and playing conditions within the golf course.
