|Four bridge superstructures were successfully removed. The original cribbing and or sill logs were left in place to maintain streambank stability, and to provide long-term fish habitat. One sill log was removed at the NW30 and Tasu 70 site due to concerns that the log may become buoyant during high water events. Additional rip-rap armouring was installed as required and all disturbed soils within the riparian management area were revegetated with WFP’s custom outer coast seed mixture.|
