Tritt Creek is a tributary of Chilco Creek which is a tributary of the Nechako River. This traditional crossing for agricultural access has been forded for many of years. While the crossing bed was stable and rock lined and sediment suspension from fording was considered minimal, the landowner wanted to protect fish and water quality values for this stream.
About Tritt Creek Restoration - Healthy Watersheds Initiative 2021
Using best management practices to prevent sediment suspension, a 12 m bridge was installed which provides year-round fish passage opportunity and reduces potential for sediment input at the crossing site.
This project was supported through the Healthy Watersheds Initiative, which is delivered by the Real Estate Foundation of BC and Watersheds BC, with financial support from the Province of British Columbia as part of its $10-billion COVID-19 response.
