Since the beginning of my career in environment, I have refer to the Atlas of Bank Restoration Sites of the St. Lawrence River and use its files to identify and develop realistic projects which were subjected to a rigorous analysis. I am greatly thankful to SLGO that allows access to this useful tool for my work and I invite you to keep it available as long as possible.
