|Phillips River is located approximately 250 km northwest of Vancouver British Columbia. Phillips River flows southwest through the Pacific Range of Coast Mountains and drains into the head of Phillips Arm. It drains an area of approximately 450 km2 and has a length of 38.9 km. (Hatfield Consultants Ltd. 2001) (Figure 1 and Drawing Phillips 10). Phillips River supports five Pacific salmon species; Coho, Chinook, Sockeye, Chum and Pinks. Of the five species pink salmon escapements are the largest with even year runs averaging 186,400 between 1985 and 1994 (Hatfield Consultants Ltd.). The Phillips River was assessed by M. Miles and Associates Ltd. (2000) to determine what remedial actions could be taken to stop erosion problems along the left bank of the Phillips River. In 2005 M.C. Wright and Associates and representatives of DFO inspected Bend B to determine the extent of erosion since it was last measured in 2001 and to determine what works would be required to protect Bend B from further erosion.|
