Culvert on private woodlot

Culvert from upstream

Tributaire South Branch 04

Monday, August 23, 2010


Private woodlot with a forestry road that crosses the stream with a metal culvert. Water overflow upstream during high water times (culvert too small). Lots of sediments on the stream bed. Future mine site in the area.

Action Required:

A follow-up is required to monitor the effects of the new mine on the river. A bigger culvert should be installed in order to accommodate a bigger waterflow.
