Upper Beaver River Brook Trout Stream Rehabilitation

<< Back to project list

This project began in August 2019. This year (2022) was a continuation of a multi-year initiative to restore and rehabilitate an important cold headwater stream of the Beaver River. As in previous years, the focus of the Beaver River Watershed Initiative (BRWI) was to restore the natural channel of the stream to improve water quality and flow, decrease thermal pollution, decrease sedimentation, and enhance and restore all components of fish habitat including, spawning, nursery, and feeding areas. This was accomplished by removing blockages caused by ice storms, tree blow downs and much earlier negative impacts created by road and bridge construction. BRWI volunteers along with the SWAT team from Trout Unlimited and professional chainsaw operators, 300 more metres of this important headwater stream was restored to a much more natural stream channel. The BRWI plans to complete the restoration of the last section of this stream at this location in 2023.
