Belledune River

Access trail to river front

Road with barrier

Belledune 05

Thursday, July 28, 2011

Issue:

Boat launch and ATV trail that follows the river bank. Fire-pit area with some waste around. Light erosion and tree removal noted in area. There is a wall that limited the surrounded area of the bassin to block the unnamed tributary.

Action Required:

The stream banks should be stabilized in order to slow down erosion and reduce sedimentation in the stream. 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 ‘’No dumping’’ and ‘‘Information about the buffer zone’’ sign should be erected near the site.
