Community Engagement/Installation of Fishculvert & River Restoration

<< Back to project list

In August of 2022 BRWI completed a 4 year project of the installation of a Fishculvert system ( at the old rail crossing on the Little Beaver River in Thornbury (located north of Hwy 26 and between Peel and Landsdowne Streets). With the assistance of Dave Penny and contractors T&W Enterprises the culvert was assembled off site, then transported on a flat bed truck and then craned into position (at over 700 kg) and attached to a custom made bracket and supports system, with boulders placed strategically by Ted Quennell’s crew. With support from Trout Unlimited Canada to monitor the creek before the installation, we look forward to 2023 to conduct a “presence / absence” Electro fishing day to determine the effects of the Fishculvert on the system. We also plan to continue to work with land owners to rehabilitate sections of the Little Beaver for both habitat and spawning beds.
