Location: Vancouver Island, British Columbia

Partners: Central Westcoast Forestry Society (CWFS)

BGC is supporting the CWFS on two stream restoration projects at Ah’tap’apq Creek and Tranquil Creek on Vancouver Island, BC. Both creeks have been impacted by poor logging practices that have led to increased sediment load within the channel transport resulting in reduced habitat for spawning salmon. At Ah’tap’apq Creek, BGC is supporting CWFS in placement of in-stream wood structures and design of a sediment basin. At Ah’tap’apq Creek, the project is in partnership with the Hesquiaht Nation. At Tranquil Creek, BGC is supporting the CWFS in the design of in-stream and bank structures to stabilize the channel and reduce sediment mobility. At Tranquil Creek, the project is in partnership with the Tla-o-qui-aht Nation. These projects support the Surface Water Team’s river restoration goal.
