This report describes the stream and fish habitat project maintenance conducted during the summer of 2003. The maintenance was conducted to protect previous year’s investments. Routine Effectiveness Evaluation (REE) of 483 structures at 12 sites within the Nimpkish Watershed was conducted in the early spring of 2003 (ALBY & nhc, March 2003). Six sites where minor maintenance was required were identified; two sites (Pink C. and Woss Channels) required more extensive maintenance work to protect previous work. In all but two cases (Woss site W1SC1 and Pink Creek site PK2SD1), Routine Maintenance activities did not require new Section 9 (Water Act) approvals, as the works were previously approved (A1-1169, 2002) and recommended maintenance did not result in any substantive changes to the stream or original site objectives. Maintenance works at the Woss side channels and Pink Creek required extension of previous Section 9 approvals, as the prescribed works involved additional instream excavation and/or addition of LWD and ballast. 2003 Maintenance works are described below in their order from downstream to upstream in the Nimpkish watershed, rather than in order of priority. Location maps and site plan sketches are included in Appendix A - Figures of this report.
