The city says public works crews have done initial assessments and found there was more erosion than originally thought. A geotechnical assessment will be needed to determine the level of repair which could include shoring up the banks with geo-fabric and large rocks if required. The dog walk will remain closed indefinitely from the Prestige Lakeside Resort to the west entrance near the Airport.
