Freshwater enhancements

"...Clark’s Creek is a spawning area for salmon and one of many systems that have been negatively affected by siltation. In addition to installing digger logs, this year crews have also created over 300 metres of brush mats which trap silt and protect bank erosion on Clark’s Creek, Pisquid River, Head of Hillsborough, and Vernon River, installed 18 floating cover logs, removed 111 log jams, and planted over 900 native trees and shrubs to help restore the riparian zone and improve the biological diversity..."

New Projects Support Biodiversity, Improve Basin Ecosystems

"...“Human activities have left a simplified ecosystem, while bank erosion threatens key habitat features, degrades water quality and widens the channel, which raises water temperature,” said Gerry Nellestijn, Coordinator with the Salmo Watershed Streamkeepers Society. “We look forward to proceeding with this project to address both erosion and simplified habitat. This will help us obtain our long-term vision of restoring the Salmo River watershed and increasing aquatic biodiversity..."

Scope of Talbot Trail EA expanded to include Cedar Springs

"...With shoreline erosion not slowing down, Chatham-Kent councillors voted Monday night to move ahead with widening the scope of an environmental assessment for Talbot Trail. But that report likely won’t be ready until the late summer or early fall of 2021, and any potential construction would not be starting until 2023. The scope change, valued at $201,422, brings the total cost of the assessment to $421,038, with BT Engineering Inc..."

Increased scope needed for Talbot Trail assessment

"...This area included shoreline from approximately Zion Road to Port Road, which includes the failure location just east of Coatsworth Road. In July of last year, the portion of Talbot Trail near Coatsworth was closed. In 2010, the municipality had to build a $200,000 bypass in the same area after nearby bank erosion caused a major crack in the road..."
