Description:
In the fall of 2005 DWB Forestry Services Ltd. (DWB) was retained by Canadian Forest Products Ltd. (CanFor), Prince George Woodlands Division, to complete a site plan and prepare an Environmental Management Plan (EMP) for the upgrading of fish passage of the Corrugated Steel Pipe (CSP) located at 12.8 km on the Chuchinka-Crocker Forest Service Road (FSR) in the Anzac Operating Area. An 800 mm x 24 meter long CSP is the present crossing structure at this location. The unnamed creek that flows through the CSP is a direct tributary to the Anzac River. In 2001, the Ministry of Water, Land, and Air Protection (MWLAP) assessed the culvert for compliance in relation to fish passage and Q100-year flood event. DWB conducted two formal reviews with regards to CSP passage and ability to accommodate a Q100 flood event. The review process included the sampling and classifying of the unnamed stream. This site was identified by DWB as Site ANZ 007 and MWLAP Site #53. In November 2005, DWB Forestry Services Ltd. (DWB) was retained by Canadian Forest Products Ltd. (CanFor), Prince George Woodlands Division, to prepare an Environmental Management Plan (EMP) for the replacement of a Corrugated Metal Pipe (CMP) at 15.4 Km on the Chuchinka-Crocker Forest Service Road (FSR). Based on the stream classification conducted by DWB in 2004, this crossing spans a default S3 stream. The aforementioned CMP was assessed in 2001 by the Ministry of Water, Land and Air Protection and determined to be a barrier to fish migration. As a result, the CMP will be replaced with a 12-meter concrete box stringer bridge. This EMP includes a description of the present site conditions, a fish habitat assessment, an assessment of the proposed crossing structure, anticipated impacts to fisheries resources, details concerning timing windows, and recommended practices for the removal and replacement of the CMP.
