The Chilako River flows north into the Nechako River, approximately 30km west of Prince George. It is also called Mud River, due to its murky water.
About Chilako Restoration Initiative
NEWSS is anticipating projects along the Chilako River. On November 27, 2013 NEWSS attended a meeting at the Beaverly Fire Department regarding the Chilako River. At the meeting there was expressed community concern for hydrological impacts across private and public land as a result of current watershed conditions (natural and anthropogenic). The current level of equivalent clear-cut area (from all sources) was estimated to be approximately 60% in the Chilako watershed.
NEWSS and UFFCA have partnered on two projects in 2016 to stabilize the erosion of the Chilako.
