FIA Project 6455012

    Road deactivation - D600
 
Project lead: Cascadia Forest Products Ltd.
Imprint: [Vancouver, B.C.] : Cascadia Forest Products Ltd., 2005
Subject: Forest Investment Account (FIA)
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program
Description:
Permanent deactivation including fill recovery, culvert removal, and construction of cross ditches. The purpose of this project was to mitigate the hazard of landslides or significant erosion occurring from old logging roads listed above. These roads are located on steep cross slopes above Moon Creek, a tributary to the Klanawa River and other unnamed tributaries draining directly into the Pacific Ocean. Failure along any section of these roads could produce sediment that could impact the fish habitat along Moon Creek and the Klanawa River. The road conditions were evaluated and associated hazards at specific locations along each road were identified. From this evaluation a road deactivation prescription was prepared to mitigate the identified hazards. It was not within the project scope to assess the open slope conditions beyond the road right of way. The project is not located within a community watershed.
