Twin creek is known to have chinook salmon rear with in it’s lower reaches. This crossing had three undersized and damaged culverts which where barriers to fish at high and low water, and periodically washed out depositing sediments downstream into the Nechako River carrying them over potential salmon spawning areas in the Nechako.
About the Twin Creek Restoration - Healthy Watershed Initiative 2021
Using best management practices, the site was isolated, fish were salvaged out of the work area, the undersized culverts were removed, the stream substrate was restored, and a 12m bridge was installed which provides year-round fish passage opportunity.
NEWSS and UFFCA have partnered on two projects in 2016 to stabilize the erosion of the Chilako.
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.
