Oquirrh Lake Openspace

G Brown Design worked with Rio Tinto and Kennecott Land as part of the Daybreak Project to stabilize eroding banks and improve the apearance of the shores of Oquirrh Lake. As an emergency measure unsightly rip rap had been dumped along the banks of the lake. Not only was this aesthetically unpleasing; it did not fully eliminate the problems creating the deterioration. GBD proposed and oversaw the installation of 100,000 wetland plants which not only provided bank stabilization, but also created color, interest and wildlife habitat.
