Friday, July 29, 2011

Issue:

ATV trail crossing the river downstream from a pipeline (used by Smelter and/or NB Power). Cement foundation hold the pipeline about 7 m in the air. Big water supply tower about 200 m from the site. Light erosion and tree removal noted in area.

Action Required:

Restore the buffer zone by planting shrubs or by letting nature take its course by leaving a strip of untouched vegetation along the shore. A ‘‘Erosion protection’’ and/or ‘‘No dumping’’ sign should be erected near the site. The banks should be stabilized in order to slow down erosion and reduce sedimentation into the water court.
