Creek Diversions and Levees

Creek Diversions and Levees

Protecting environment, community & projects

We’ve been diverting creeks and building levees for over 50 years, ensuring waterways continue their flow without compromising infrastructure or the surrounding environment.


Our expertise

Creek diversions are more than just redirecting water; they’re about understanding the land, the flow, and the long-term effects on the ecosystem. With our rich history in bulk earthmoving and civil construction, we provide an all-encompassing approach to every creek diversion project we complete. Constructing levees requires meticulous planning, solid engineering, and a thorough understanding of hydrodynamics, as well as a team on the ground who can be counted on to do the job right – and this is all where we excel.
