Koka Booth Amphitheatre Shoreline Reclamation Project

Project: Town of Cary

Location: Lake Symphony at Koka Booth Amphitheatre

Team: Atlantic Mulch and BMP East Retention Pond Services

In the fall of 2011 Atlantic Mulch did a shoreline restoration project at Koka Booth Amphitheatre at Lake Symphony.  The shoreline erosion was impeding on the greenway trail system.  Atlantic Mulch was contracted to extend and stabilize 300 linear feet of shoreline in front of Koka Booth Amphitheatre, and regain five feet of shoreline.  The project was designed in house with direction from the Town of Cary and BMP East.

Atlantic Mulch installed 600 linear feet of 24″ Filtrexx Durasoxx filled with Green Releaf Engineered Topsoil.  The Soxx was secured to the existing shoreline with a Filtrexx Lock down netting.  The Soxx and bank were backfilled and compacted with Green Releaf Engineered Topsoil and then Bermuda sod was installed for finish grade.  This spring, to complete the project, the outer Soxx will be live staked with native wetland plants by BMP East.
